Hi everyone

A quick message to say that everything is OK and sorry we haven’t been in contact – it has been really busy on board getting through these damn doldrums.  We have had nearly no sleep for the past 36 hrs, and very little food because we have been concentrating on getting every ounce of speed out of this old tub that hates light winds.  We have had rain squalls, no wind, 30 knots of wind in which we were doing 18 knots, constant sail changes, steaming temps etc etc, BUT it has paid off as we are now only 12 miles behind my old mate Halvard.  With the All Blacks doing well neither of us are complaining!!!

Must go on deck.

Speak soon,
