8 places overnight! Alan’s westerly position seems to be paying off
the fresh wind earlier than his competitors. And took advantage of it
to gain ground in the north-west.
two - tiring - ridges to cross, in which Alan held on despite
rankings that could have discouraged many a skipper, it’s back to
downwind sailing and speed. The day promises to be speedy, in south
and south-easterly winds of 15 to 20 knots, in which jibes may string
along for Hublot,
in order to head more northwards. Let’s hope they cross in front of
the group to the right, heading for Iceland!
