After another day of battling Maltese efficiency, we've left Grand Harbour Marina and are motoring along the SE coast of Malta. There are four of us on board - Myself (Ric) and Paul, and we're joined by George and Jack for the trip to Las Palmas.

We have no wind at all at the moment, but that's set to change with a horrendous weather system driving very strong westerly winds across the Med in a couple of days time. We're monitoring the weather closely, and if nothing changes in the next 24 hours we may have to consider stopping in Trapani on the NW corner of Sicily.

EH01, another Global Yacht Racing boat is only a mile or so behind us. You can follow their blog at http://blog.mailasail.com/eh01
