It’s now less than 4 weeks to the start of the race and I’m starting to get nervous.

I’ve done all the big things to get the boat ready but now it’s down to the final detail and there still seems a lot to do. My “To Do” list is growing!

The plan is to spend as much time on the boat as possible this month so I can do plenty of sailing but also do all the last minute tinkering. To this end we’ve come down to the Isles of Scilly for a few days which has given me my first overnighter of the season and a chance to try everything out.

Main job this week is to get the satellite phone working and experiment sending e mails and getting weather files at sea.
