Thank you Den Helder for such warm hospitality! So, the final race and one where we got away ok but we haven't fared so well since. Those which got around our north west course mark have stretched out a bit now with the advantage of the tide. Even though we should be completing this race later tonight, there is a lot to do yet before that happens. So we will be sticking to the game plan and concentrating on getting the boat going as fast as we can.. Peter..
