Hi all.

Still making steady progress towards Derry-Londonderry although the forecast suggests that we may get slowed up before we arrive.

The boats that split to the south after the ice gate seemed to have fared much better weather wise and have made some good advance on the rest of the fleet. Those of us that went north got punished with a couple of lighter patches but that’s often the gamble of ocean racing. ~

Today is our youngest crew members birthday, Rosie Creber, so we will be celebrating the last of the onboard birthdays for this race. Her Mum told her she has to share her mint M’n’Ms so we are all waiting with anticipation.

Less than 250 miles to go so cross fingers we don't get slowed up too much with this wind hole!

Dale out.
