From Sir Robin on Grey Power

A Grade A Grey Day on Grey Power where Robin is having porridge for breakfast and about to battle with his Skype  It was the auto pilot alarm sounding at 0030 that gave the first indication that we had the long awaited veer in the wind from North West to North. The pilot was set up for a certain course and the move of the wind altered the balance of the sails and the pilot could not hold. A bit of
sheet adjustment and we were off. I sat up for a while in case the balance was not right, but we have sailed quickly throughout the night,
just changing to the larger Jib just before 0600 this morning  Its a Grade A grey day out here at the moment but the sun does appear to be
trying to find gaps in the clouds to the South East. A little further round to the East is the island of Madeira. I did pick up its very strong
lighthouse during the night but we wont see the land. There is another yacht about 3 miles away to starboard, doing almost the
same speed and course. The name does not come up on AIS So porridge for breakfast. At some time today we need to find out why
skype has suddenly decided it needs a password. It didn't yesterday morning but won't allow me in now. Bad programming - again!

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.
