Andrew McIrvine, RORC Commodore, on board GBR1236L Quokka VII

Nor much in the blog dept from the small furry marsupials (Quokkas) GBR1236L

Working too hard and rarely within mobile range plus not previouslyallowed off rail by the skipper. Morale high. It is Mr Frys birthday andwe have sung to him. We are relieved to be off the wind at last. Wentround the rock in a thick sea mist. Only saw it when we were 0.25 milesoff.

Went round just ahead of Maverick. Coincidentally did the same at RoyalSov in the Channel Race. So we seem to be doing alright. We will bekeeping up the effort all the way home. I am writing this as we are halfway down the leg to the Scillies so it will not transmit till we are inrange.

Best wishesThe Commodore
