Newport to Cabo Update from Alchemy

On board report....

It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride. We were over early at the start. returned, set the code 0 and in an hour were lead boat.  The wind completely shut off twice and then turned  to upwind. We changed to the 3 at 3:30am and are now pounding to weather  in 20 knots.  The boat is shuttering and the wind is predicted to increase to 30 +.  Hard to type because we are so healed and the vibration is making my eyes blurry.
