Giving Up is Easy

Robin Knox Johnston lost a few miles on his rivals going upwind but he is back reaching today and going faster, determined to keep climbing the leaderboard

The front passed over shortly after 0200 with a few gusts before hand
which we were ready for and rode out safely.  After allowing a little time for the waves to ease,  I was able to shake out more sail and come round to a more desirable course for my game plan.   The mainsail has had to wait until daylight as it was caught on the runners and I could not see to clear it.  That is now sorted.
I lost quite a lot of distance on the others as a result of those headwinds so must concentrate now on trying to recover lost ground.
Glad to hear Bob Escoffier is OK but sorry about the loss of his boat.

Giving up smoking is easy!
