OK so after another hectic night we are battling the light winds off the western side of Guadaloupe. Since the first mark off Barbuda we have been having a great tussle with 'Hound' another yacht from our class (div 1) They have been snapping at our heels the whole time but we've held them off untilthe long windy reach from St Martinto here where they gotin front. However some nifty kite work in anticipation of breeze under a cloud has us back in front. Also joining our battle are some old sparring partners Northern Child. They appeared in fron of us this mornig and we have hauled them in until all three yacts are within shouting distance and battlig te light winds to gain advantage as we head down to the island group of Le Saints off Guadaloup.
Everyone is in great spirits ofnot a little knackered as wth only 9 crew we have a 'bit on' with all the sail changes we have been doing.
It doesnt seem as if we are well up in class at present judging by the position reports we have got but the battle continues!
