EH01 - Latest news
One or two issues holding us back from our best performance but working on them. Really looking forward to arriving in St Lucia as the end of the race gets closer. It's also nice to be experiencing more typical trade weather, no wet gear so far tonight! We have had site of other yachts for the first time since turning west which was nice, we are not alone out here. All good on board though looking forward to some rum punch.Sent from Iridium Mail & Web.. read more...

EH01 - Surfing the day away
Wind has picked up and now heading for st Lucia! Starting to get good boat speeds surfing the waves. Sail changes last night a bit challenging changing spinnaker, amazing we had to change course to avoid another boat! Eating really well enjoying all our fresh food though I think we purchased too many bananas.Sent from Iridium Mail & Web.. read more...
