Skipper Wendy Tuck report: Race 1 Day 23 on Sept 12
We have started our Elliot Brown Ocean Sprint. It started OK, then we got into squall land which made our course not so good, so we didn’t have as much south as we would have liked.
Now the wind has stayed the same but the swell has finally picked up, so we have a lot of waves now with no backs, so that means we are bashing along.
So I don’t think we have much chance in the sprint – it’s now like trying to do the 100m sprint on a track covered in potholes, hope that gives you an idea of what it’s like. All the while still living on the north face, everything just takes up so much more energy. Anyway, time to go do a bit of abseiling whilst I move around the boat.
How’s the serenity? Not much here at the moment…
Love youse all
