Congratulations to Alex Pella! He was my pre-race favourite and I am delighted for him that he has won - a well-deserved victory.

There are two things of which I am very afraid at sea: lightning (scared of that  on land too!), and hitting something.
After nightfall, there were several squalls with lightning in them which passed over Campagne de France. Not only did the wind get up to the high 30s, but there were bolts hitting the water as well. We escaped.
Just now, the autopilot alarm went off and the boat wiped out. I took the helm to find that the boat was impossible to steer - a large fish had wrapped itself round one of the rudders. Stopped the boat until the fish drifted off, and all seems OK for now. Apart from the distant lightning. Even hundreds of miles awy, it gives me the creeps.
