Pegasus: Two tropical Storms on the way

Update from Pegasus Racing on Transpac 2007:

Now it's a bit of a game of chicken: There are two tropical depressionsactive in the eastern Pacific (See the chart). Both of these systems areforecast to strengthen into Tropical Storms in the next 24 hours. The firstone, TD5 will likely weaken after 28 hours, while the second one, TD6 islikely to continue strengthening to a moderate or strong Tropical Stormwhile moving slightly north of due west. So now, does anyone have the gutsto go South and "catch a little lift from the big ones"? This is going to beone interesting race! - Philippe Kahn
