2 June 2005 – Day 4
Under sail in very rough (force 7) conditions. It is too rough to handle the laptop and satellite phone so need to keep my report short. My position is Latitude 51 07 and Longitude 09 12 on the chart – just below south of Ireland. The high-pressure weather and force 7 wind will, I hope, help me to make up for lost time and catch my competitors. I will continue north for a few days then turn south depending on the weather.
