A Whole New World

Miranda Merron has been having a great tussle with Geodis over yesterday but she eased ahead yesterday evening and this morning Fabrice Amedeo is back in front, but only just. Here is Miranda's morning report Upwind all day yesterday, sailed in sight of Geodis all day - he was ahead of me before dark, but I got him back when the front went through some time after dark. I'm not sure which one of us is closer to Guadeloupe, but I am maybe a mile closer to the trade wind.
There wasn't much to the front in the end, and behind it there is a magical world which bears no resemblance to the past few days. Full moon, light enough to trim the sails by,  hardly a cloud in the sky, the sea is calming down with only the occasional wave getting dumped in the cockpit. Campagne de France is reaching along  under full green and white sails, off in search of the trade winds. Perhaps they even exist!

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.
