On our way to an Irish rock

Hi,

2 days and 2 nights and the boat begins to smell just a little... or is it us smelling? We are now crossing the Irish sea staying just South of the rumbline hoping to see "The Rock" during daylight.

We had a bit of a bumpy ride yesterday with some of the crew not so interested in eating the delicious freeze dry chicken with noodles. This means more for me, and I tought loosing a couple of extra killo´s would do me good...

Jens (captain/owner) and Marius (our navigator) are watching the options closely. There is a lot to win or loose crossing here and we wanne be on the right spot when the shift from the West kicks in this afternoon.

We just saw Cutting Edge and another white TP52 passing by slowely. We are now working harder to keep up and having a boat around makes the trimmers and helmsmen stay more alert. It looks that we are able to keep up.
