The rally is on its way, all boats, except two, rushed out at first light .
The two left in Bajone are waiting for the wind to come and go before setting off, as the other option was motor fast to beet the wind before it comes on strong.
Gertha is waiting as she fails to go under engine with any speed. Murphy is also waiting as lusts after a chalange of sailing against Gerty.
It is now 11 am and wind is slowly arriving , looks like a late afternoon departure with some over night.
The guys from world cruising have apologised for may be not being on hand to take our lines if we arrive in the small hours; but with the excellent help they always give they can be let off for this.
