Day 2 in the WART Household - 18 August

Greetings from off the Scillies, we are now 48 hours into the Fastnet. To

date it's been glorious weather but very very light winds since the early

hours of this morning and we have been trimming our hearts out. The

Scilles look resplendent, sandy beaches and a few WARTs murmuring about how

nice a pint of lager would be!

Glassy conditions is not something you see often out here! The brains

trust have been pouring over gribs and guess what, they reflect very little

of what we have seen in reality. Skippy is muttering lots about tidal

charts that all say different things.

The good news is Pedro did indeed sell us ice creams off Salcombe now we

are on the prowl for Dolphins.

Joke of the day "How do you know when a Fastnet crew are happy! They hug

the coast! (Credit to Nancy Pants )
