Half way across the Celtic Sea and the thoughts are starting to turn to the first beer when we get in and a warm shower. While I think we’d all like to be in soon, we all want to savour the last few days on board.

We’ve got beautiful sailing conditions today; not a cloud in the sky and dolphins accompanying us from time to time.

It’s been an incredible race; seeing parts of the UK and Ireland from the sea, a vantage point that people are rarely privileged to gain. I think of Muckle Flugga at the top of Shetland with its white light house and bird colonies and St Kilda’s black cliffs against the stark moon as we rushed headlong south.

However I don’t want to reminisce too much, there still a lot of sailing to do and a lot of laughs to be had aboard the big orange boat. I certainly don’t want to wish it over until we’re good and ready and seen a few more sights.
