Well the wind came in around 9:30 and we have just had a fantastic day's sailing. We've been playing musical chairs with a starting helm, a racing helm and a "can't you guys do anything right" helm, as well as an upwind crew and a downwind crew. After two days as novice sailor/foredeck hero, Peter Denison has now got some help from Fastnet veteran Nick Huxford and we have a bit of slack in crew numbers. We had been sailing with a crew of 6, but we haven't been at all shy about getting the kite up. Today the sun came out and the wind hit a very solid F4 giving us a brilliant afternoon of racing. All three races were completed though there were a couple of shortened courses.

We are currently in 12th place out of the 20 boats having scored a 15th, 16th and 14th today.

Tomorrow is forecast to be a breezy and maybe wet day for the race round the island.

Meanwhile news is that Trevor Drew and Richard Palmer are in Kinsale after the first leg of their Round Britain and Ireland two-handed race. We wish them well for the next leg.
