I thought i'd add my 2 cents to all this internet wizardry. so after the fast pace of the preperation week with asorted briefings, saftey checks, talks and maintenance.  Followed by the almost frantic pace of the start line activities and party atmosphere of les palmas on the last day. I'm extactic to say we're on our way at last!!
    I for one felt like a 5 year old before christmas yesterday but after all the activity yesterday, with sail changes odd rigging set ups and the like we have now settled into a nice routine with all the watches set up properly and everything getting done as it should and mostly on time, I don't think there could have been a better start!!
   I hope all are well at home.
hopefully i'll write something more interesting in the near future.
