All,

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.
