Things are a bit tense here with 108 n miles to run to our Lizard waypoint. We have the genoa poled out in 25kts of wind and sailing down the track nicely.
Plymouth forecast this morning is wind West or South West 4 or 5 increasing 6 or 7 for a time which looks good for a reasonable run in.
Much more shipping about and we can see another yacht on our port side - not sure who - might be Growler.
We are scratching away to keep boat speed - we look well placed in our class if the AZAB positions of noon yesterday are right.
Starting to dream of that shower (really needed - my boots have not been off for 3 days!) and a pint of beer!
All being well looking at a finish sometime in the dark tonight.
