For those of you watching the Race Viewer, we are happy to keep you sitting on the edge of your seats, biting your finger nails, and that is exactly what is going on here. Well, sitting on the side of the boat, biting finger nails. Last night we had a small squall that pushed us away from where we wanted to be, that is right next to Visit Seattle. We had opened up a teeny-weeny gap on them and now it’s all come crashing down.

So, now we are praying for a bit of a wind build on the right-hand side of the course to push us down and fast.

Jules (not media Jules) you said because we are now sailing in welsh waters and my birthday is St David’s day, the Welsh gods will be kind to us. Well tell them to hurry up please.

On a brighter note, yesterday was one of these cracker days, beautiful downwind sailing, some chats on the radio with other Skippers, on deck watch sang happy birthday to Nikki over the VHF, some cool wildlife.

Better go. Got more on than the early settlers trying to catch some boats.

A more reflective blog tomorrow.

There is no serenity,

Love youse all,

Wendo
