It’s been a busy few days pushing ourselves back on track. Despite the bad weather, needing to para-anchor, and the technical issues which nearly finished our attempt, we have managed to claw back lots of lost time.

If we continue at this pace we might… just might… get back onto world record pace. Our boat speed is great, but we need Mother Nature to play her part. Unfortunately, we have another bad weather front coming, which we hope will be the last. So, we’ll see how well we can battle through.

Having said all that it’s great to be dry and to dry out kit. The ocean has been beautiful in its vastness and her different characteristics. One day in particular, the water was like glass or liquid metal… not a ripple, just the gentle rise and fall of the swell as she breathed.

The battle is very real!!!
