Good morning fans and followers. Day 4 sees the mighty EH01 making slow but steady progress towards the NW tip of Sicily. Morale on board is high despite almost 36 hrs of light if not almost non existent winds. The crew have worked tirelessly with numerous changes of sails and sail configurations. The result is that we have continued to move almost the whole time albeit slowly.

We were delighted with the news received last night that as of rounding Stromboli we were ahead of P42 and also mid fleet in terms of identical Beneteau 47.7's. Since then we seem to have held our own with our better performances being in the lighter airs.

On board entertainment to chew through the hours has included games of "I spy", "Porn Star Names" and some very dodgey singing. All is well and we have now started taking bets on our arrival time back in Malta as we drift towards the halfway point in the race.

Hello to all the family and friends following our progress. See you all soon.
