Day 3 on the Big Brother Boat!

Mandy is questioning the wisdom of spending 5 days on a 37ft yacht with 8

men

Pete is updating his Facebook status to 'Just got out of Bunk'

Billy is in the Diary Room accepting todays challenge - sail around a rock

just of Ireland - YOU MUST RESIST THE TEMPTATION TO SYOP FOR A GUINESS!

A testing first 2 days, magnificent start experience in the company of the

world's top offshore yachts, seeing Comanche breeze past and Leopard and

Rambler 88 in tacking duel off the needles = spectacular.

Not such a quick ride for us and despite working hard for every headland

we still have some place making up to do.

Moral is high, the home made cakes for afternoon are going down a storm

and it's time to drift through The Scilly's and then heads down for a

breezy ride to the Rock and back.

Looking forward to a cold beer in Plymouth - see you there.

Billy (ships dogsbody) signing off.
