Less than 12 hours to go

30 12 2011

Hi – this is short because I can’t type.

WE’RE GETTING THE **** KICKED OUT OF US.

Just before the wind instruments got blown off the rig it was 38 knots and then it got winder. Now we estimate a solid 30 gusting 40 with breaking seas.
Great place this Cook Strait.

The poor old boat has suffered some damage, it’s full of water, wet sails and sailing gear – its a shambles but we have only 12 more hours left. The crew are suffering – Campbell has a black eye from head butting the forestay – I have brusies everywhere from being thrown around the boat.

Are we enjoying it? NO, but this is only a tiny percentage of some of the best sailing in the world.

Congratulations to Cessna. Conrad and Sam sailed brilliantly and thoroughly deserve their win – bloody well done.

Come down later today and see us.

Cheers.
Ross
