We are finally around waypoint Fastnet after a frustrating beat. We just seem to suffer so much with boat speed and height compared to the fleet and continually find ourselves dropping back on any of the upwind races. Anyway, not to complain. It was really nice to ease the sheets and head east towards the Scilly Isles at which we will turn and head north for Liverpool.
There has been a bit of a flu bug doing the rounds on the boat so I think that collectively everyone is happy to see our upwind sailing hopefully complete for this race.
