Hi from the crew, ( Adam, Sam, Peter, Trish, Sophia, Dave, Chris, Marc, Charles, Zolton and Adrian). We started in good spirits at 1240 GMT Sunday 23rd November. After much excitement in the first five minutes the crew quickly settles into a routine with the light spinnaker up. Before a "Mexican" dinner cooked by Trish & Chris (the first of what will be many Chilli and rice meals) we swapped to the heavy spinnaker which came down abruptly at 2130 with a bang. It would be unfair to lay blame but rest assured that the she feels it wasn't her fault but some dodgy trimming. The team are taking great delight in bringing it up at any given opportunity. Manly Dave is now sewing back together the mess. The crew remain in good sprits and have a new spinnaker up. Stay tuned for more news tomorrow!! Bye Bye
