From Miranda Merron

Miranda Merron reports in this morning from Campagne de France, lying in eighth place: "The first night we were treated to a cold front and all that that entails. The second night we had another front or trough, lots of large grey ominous things ull of wind, rain, hail and lightning, wth nothing much in the short gap between each onslaught.

There was one spectacular bolt which landed roughly where I think Halvard and Damien were, and I heard them talking on the radio, but it wasn't clear enough to know if either got hit. Nothing like a mast sticking up in the air on open water, begging to be a lightning conductor! Usually not very good for the on board electronics either.

Anyway, that particular weather is on its way to mainland Europe...
There is wind, but not sure how much or the exact direction, and I no longer have boat speed (should all come back when it eventually becomes possible to change over the wind wands). No boat speed means that all calculations are false: for example, my percentage of target perfrmance is 1734 percent, which is most impressive! The current is flowng at 159 knots...
