Crew member on GBR815 Longue Pierre
So it is the early hours of Tuesday morning and the perhaps the most
tactical decision of the race is being chewed over ... go up lands end, or
go on towards the Scilly isles.. we chose the latter then with the wind
slowing, foul tide... you get the picture.
And so began 24 hours of it just not going quite right. Will spare you
the long list but with even finding 1 hour of zero wind ( in a forecast
of NW 5or6 occasionally 7 ) felt exceptionally cruel.
So I summarise Tuesday as Wednesday begins. In contrast the Wind is now up
and we are cracked open heading to Fastnet...
On the right side whilst becalmed had a pair of dolphins play next to us
for so long we gave them names... Punky and Perky send their regards .
