Fingers crossed, our blog is now finally working. We have been emailing family a daily update and so apologies to those who have missed out on our progress so far.

As with the Duckworth Lewis method in cricket, the handicapping system in sailing sometimes throws up strange results, and rain didn’t even stop play.
