Starlight Express

This time two weeks ago, the fleet was "enjoying" the first night in a cold front in the English Channel.
Nights like tonight make all the harder parts of the race worthwhile - beautiful, clear night, millions of stars.
Occasional shooting stars. The fluorescent draft stripes in the mainsail are glowing in the dark. Not much wind, but the shift to the NE has arrived, and the boat is aligned in the direction of the waves. The interminable, infernal gybing has ceased for now. Yesterday afternoon, I noticed a tear in the spinnaker when unsocking after a gybe. Got it down, put up the other one, repaired the spi, back on deck - boat heading in wrong direction, time to gybe again, but it did prove to be the last one of the day. And the reward has been a peaceful night so far, but dawn is still several hours way.

Sir Robin's In The Pink on Grey Power, finished third!

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston finishes third in Rhum Class in La Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe Solo Transatlantic Race. Hours from the finish line, when he was locked in a tense final battle with Italian course record holder for his class Andrea Mura, doing all he could to steal second, Britain's Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, 75, pronounced that he would be simply 'ecstatic' if he were to finish third in the Rhum Class of La Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe, the 3542 miles solo race from Saint-Malo, France to Guadeloupe in the French West Indies.
