Still light winds is this the Fastnet or is it the Slownet!!!

Wed 10 Aug 2005 09:21
Still difficult conditions with wind speeds less than 5 Knots... Highlight of the morning so far is the sight of 3 dolphins off the bow for about 10 minutes. The weather is again great with sunshine and little to no clouds. The whole crew are already in shorts and t shirts and spirits are high as Rock slowly approaches. Currently we are 33 miles south west the rock hoping for the expected wind shift to play into our hands as we are the most Westerly boat we can see at the moment except the big boats coming back. We are being passed by Class Zero boats with Handicaps of 1.25 so all in all we feel quite OK about our position.
