Tiny tiny boat - its hero to zero

100m from Portland bill, 50m from Runnel Stone and 25m from the Fastnet, A smashing beat across the Irish Sea and then yes, you guessed it, Zero. It took us 5hours to do the last few miles to the Rock and our ETA for Plymouth is now Friday very very late. Alice my daughter sent me a picture showing we were in first place for a moments during those amazing first 3 days!! Well that's Ocean Racing Patience and persistence ... but this a touch tough race in a 30ft well appointed colander !!! Wet is not the word for it??.

Still having fun two handed yours Skipper Stu (stuart Greenfield)
