Race 8 Day 24

Derry~Londonderry~Doire - Sean McCarter

05 FEB 2014 - Race 8

Good morning sports fans from Derry~Londonderry~Doire!

Well, what seems like an awful long time, we crossed the finish line of Race 8A in the early hours of the morning or 1635 UTC your time.

Our position so far is seventh which is a little disappointing but when you add in the three bonus points it takes the sting out of it. We are reasonably happy in a race with so many uncertainties and are now motoring in company with OneDLL, Old Pulteney and Switzerland.

At present speeds, we have about three and a half days to the re-fuelling stop and then the re-start of Race 8B. The crew have done a great job on the work list today, so much so I had to warn them to pace themselves!
