Dear all,
On request of the skipper Anders, I am free to writte a small massage to all of you.
First of all I would like to thank 3 persons:
1) Erik for his fantastic Swan ( we take care of her)
2) Anders, the most relaxed but experienced skipper we ever met.
3) Our chef de cuisine Chris, who knows to suprise us 3 times a day with an excellent meal.
After our perfect start, we decided not to use the Genacker as we had wind enough and the crew had to learn the boat first.
It was our tactic not to go straight South but first go West first to get a favourable wind. (So far so good)
This morning at 10:00 the Genacker was set and the speed went up to 9 to 10 knots.
We are in a field with 4 others.
We also received a repport from the ARC this morning with a score. At his moment we are on nr 24 position (after handicap rating) out of 220 and this was measured at 04:00 this morning. Let's wait for the new list.
Just to inform you that we all experience a wonderfull crossing sofar.
