2 out of 10 – Must Try Harder!

Although of naturally modest and unassuming nature – I feel that the widest possible circulation is necessary to draw attention to the above result. With a northerly gale behind us we wizzed down the Irish sea – one other boat Jamaica had a casualty taken off by helicopter following an accidental gybe – the picked our way past Ushant and down the French coast. Then we lost the wind completely. Race committee shortened to 1am Thursday when we radioed in our position. It’s very stressful sailing in very little wind when you can see the yacht behind you So I now have a pennant – presented to all the Liverpool crew by the Mayor which I confidently expect to be displayed in a prominent position in the Bass clubhouse.

Rest day today with France Ireland in the evening jobs tomorrow off on Sun – next stop Brazil
