Mike Sanderson, Skipper blog update at 0845 Mon 15th August

We were happy with our start, tough going getting straight into

short tacking, not really done much of that in our short practise days!

Speed is ok - but not 'fast', managing to hang in there with the other 2

guys which is good. Our incident with a class 40 pushed us back to the

wrong side, threw us off balance and gave the others a jump ahead. We are

racing hard, eating and sleeping well, good spirit on board. We decided to

cut the corner at Lands End which is momentarily paying off and putting us

in the lead - good for spirit, we'll take that!

Will update again at the rock - cheers Mike
