The end of the wind

The wind we have had for the last few days has now come to an end, we are back down to less than 15knots, and this 30tonne boat just will not move in anything less than 15knots downwind.

So making just over 4knots over the ground, so the crew thinking that they may win the sweepstake on our arrival time is slowing passing them by.  I’m however getting more confident that I may end up with the pot.

As long as we make it for the 18th, and the final party, which we should.
