Crew member on GBR52R Chernikeeff 2
Afternoon bloggers from the chernikeeff 2, well we have had a pretty interesting day sailing along on our own with only about 15 miles vis. Currently approaching lands end which is on the bow and have also spotted a few boats from our class, we are now sailing on port tack and expecting to be on this for the majority of the way to the rock.
Our afternoon was made all the more interesting with a catastrophic failure of one of our runner tails (a rope that controls our mast) but with quick thinking from the C2s onboard maintenence team disaster has been overted and we are back upto full speed.
Spirits are still high on the chernikeeff, we are all considering ourselves very lucky to even be competing in this race let alone doing as well as we are. Next blog will be from the vacinity of the fastnet rock!
