All bar 5 boats have now crossed the finish line.
Official results have not yet been published however it looks like Star Dancer has won the Class 3 leg from Ponta Delgada to Falmouth and will also be the overall Class 3 Race winner.
I hesitate to write this but the corrected times of boats in contention all look good for Star Dancer as the winner and the other boats are congratulating us!
John went back to his busy life yesterday with Didi driving him home whilst he read over his many letters of congratulation for his OBE awarded during the race - a special man who has worked for years raising well over £2m for the charity SENSE - supporting deaf-blind people.
We have our friends from Ruffian moored alongside and Monteraz nearby.
Ruffian is sailing back to Scarborough and Monteraz to Oban in Scotland which makes our distance back to the Solent seem minor in comparison.
Most of the boat crews are meeting at the Royal Cornwall for supper tonight.
Jen is with me and is claiming Starry back after letting me play with her for so long!
More to follow on results when published - they will be on AZAB website as well as this blog.
