A message from St Kilda
Pata Negra has made it to St Kilda this morning after a difficult
night. We dropped the kite due to gusts of 30Knts where it was just
difficult to manage the surf without having a major issue so we sailed
the night hours under J2. This morning though, our hoist of the A5
went bad and we lost it to the sea, but luckily no damage to the boat
We've just set the A4 kite (carefully!) and have now set off at about
11 knots towards the top. Sun is shining and at last we have a chance
to dry the boat out.
Seeing St Kilda up close was really quite special and here is a photo for you.
