Just a quick blog to keep you all up to date. We had a record 24 hour run of 180 miles.We're now 24th on the water, with 53 boats having finished. There are boats all around as we home in on St. Lucia (well, four actually). The wind has eased so, ... up with the asymmetric for a final push towards the finish! We have 52 miles to go and the Raymarine is telling us about 7 1/2 hours at our present speed.Thanks for all the good wishes that we have received - much appreciated. Champagne is chilling in the 'fridge! We'll report again tomorrow. 2010 UT 08/12/09.
PS Tony had an enormous tuna on the line this morning but it got away as Dave took over to reel it in; should have left it to the professional, Dave!
