Just a quick update following our earlier news - we ended up with a fairly cloudy day with one good squall this evening with torrential rain and 30 plus kts wind - hatches were battened - tiller duty was doubled (well done Zoe and Ed) and the skipper nipped out on the aft deck with hs shampoo and had a shower..

Not much wind right now but lightning about so still a few squalls - now on two on four off steering watches but we are hopeful we may get good advice to resolve autopilot issues on Moday plus advice on steering repairs too

All the best from Mark, Ed, Lis,Andy, Anna and Zoe
