We cant yet see it but its only 29 miles away (the corner of St Lucia we
have to round).
We had a busy night with strong winds of 25+ and large swell as well as many
ominous clouds to dodge so we are all a bit tired today.
A few more yachts have started to appear on the horizon as we close the
finish way point and it looks like one more gybe, a kite drop and short beat
will see us to the fininsh line; lets hope the crew can remember how to sail
upwind and tack!
The fishing has ended in disgrace I'm afraid. Another lure went yesterday so
its fish 8 (or 9 I've lost count) and boat 1; pathetic! We discussed the
merits of hand grenade or TNT fishing yesterday and whilst effective
collecting the catch may prove difficult. Still, Paul thinks there may be a
magazine for it.....
I will endevour to write once more after we finish and have 'refreshed'
ourselves, meanwhile we're still racing!
