It's our third day at sea with ARC 2023, and we're a couple of hundred miles off the Mauritanian coast, between the Canaries and Cape Verde islands. I have a lot of back filling of the blog to complete our story, so will do that first, and hope to catch up soon.
In the meantime, here are some instructions on how to follow our progress:
For Apple/iOS devices, download the "YB Races" app from the App Store, open it, then select ARC 2023 from the races list. Our boat is number 168, and identified by our name (Niord) and national flag.
On Windows, go to, then select ARC, then select "Fleet Viewer".
Once I catch up with the blog, I will also report our position there.
We are all well. I have a message for Colin from Jamie. Can you please put £200 into his bank account to cover his upcoming direct debits, as he forgot to do this before he left amidst the general excitement!
