Yippee comms are back and working! I hope families and friends will enjoy the blogs that we wrote but unable to post. We will try and send some pics too.
Its getting hot, hot, hot down here - there are a large number of legs coming on show for the first time as we make our way towards the Equator.
Slip, Slap and Slop is going on regularly but Doctor Dan is insisting we all need to drink more. Helen and Fred have been cooking up a storm in the galley, but it is almost like working in a sauna.
The sailing is fast and furious with all eyes on the horizon for squalls. A squall usual means a sudden increase in wind speeds so its all hands to drop the kite we are flying for a more robust sail. They only last a short while so then its all hands to change back to the original kite. I'm sure by the end of race we will be a slick sail change team.
Oh, some of you may wonder about our track, it’s been difficult without full updated weather but Damian's instinct seems to be right on the money as we move up the fleet with plenty of time to make up the lost ground.
Hi to all our family and friends.
