Crew member on GBR8191R British Soldier
British Soldier has made good progress through some foul weather over the
last 12 hours. They have passed the next waypoint, due north of Stornaway
and are approx. 30 miles behind the leader of the IRC Class 2 - good going
for the conditions.
The next 18 hours will be pretty tough (swell between 5 and 9 metres)for
them as the wind remains GF7-8 until about midnight tonight. There will
probably not be an update from the boat until this weather system passes
and they have had time to sort themselves out.
