Crew member on USA48000 Sjambok

We just rounded the Fastnet rock! There was a lot of mist, I would sayabout half a mile of visibility. So it took us quit a while before wesaw what we were hearing for the last hour.

Everybody was eager to see the rock so for the crew it was a bit likecounting down for new year. And then suddenly out of nowhere in the foggysky we saw the beaming of the lighthouse showing us the way. Ofcourse weneeded Marius to tell us which way around "Fastnet Rock, round to port"so, how much easier can it be?

We are now on our way to avoid all the other boats while heading for theScilly's (we will try to avoid the Mermaid on St Marry's).

Wet greetings
