No wind

Friday night saw the wind slowly dropping off and Saturday morning there wasn’t much of anything except some current against me,not going to make it in today I thought.

Saturday night the wind slowly started picking up, just enough to stop me going crazy. By early Sunday morning a nice NE wind had picked up and we are off heading for the finish line. BWR is really going for it hard and fast and I am just along for the ride. Looking forward to a hot shower and a cold beer (sorry Jess about the shower) and to see all the family and friends and Suzanne waiting at the finish line. It hasn’t been as easy as it looks to win this race again as I have pushed the boat hard in all conditions to get the best out of it and you don’t get much sleep doing that.

Well I had better get back to getting this boat to the finish.

  1. Well Oceantracker tells me it's only 6.6nm and an estimated 26 minutes and 40 seconds until you cross the line - so you will have "done it" before the next refresh. Congratulations Bruce, well done! Enjoy that beer. Cath Watson & Campbell Wylie
