As you guys all rush down to the voting booths, the election couldn't seem further away for us. We have neither seen nor heard anything about it! The French weren't really aware that it was on either! 
We are now 250 miles from Cape Finnisterre, 170 miles out from Camaret. The weather has been kind so far with NW and now N winds. The crew are settling into the rhythm of life at sea well. One currently asleep(Rod), Regis on the helm and me at the pc. One or two minor issues with the boat but generally ok.
Biscay is not intimidating  - but it does make the boat roll. We didn't even have a chance for Ipod time last night! Maybe tonight.
