Hi all,

We are off on the final race of our round the world epic!!! It is so hard to believe that our boats are now heading towards Liverpool and that in a couple of days’ time we will close the circle on our outbound track.

Derry-Londonderry has been a fantastic stopover and we have all thoroughly enjoyed the warmth of the Northern Irish people and the Guinness. It has been the perfect rest after our last ocean crossing and a good time to reflect on what we have accomplished as a fleet.

Yesterday’s start went very well for us and we had a great sail out of Lough Foyle but were all soon battling with a bit of a windhole that saw the boat positions chopping and changing by the minute.

We eventually made it around Waypoint Rowell and have spent the night hard on the wind which is not Dare To Lead’s favourite point of sail. Anyway, a long way to go still and we are sailing hard.
