We’re finally out of the clutches of Sicily and into the fresh south-easterly breeze.

Infanta is sliding along on rails, one of the most comfortable upwind boats I’ve been on.

That’s 14 tonnes of mahogany and oak for you.

This is a beautiful boat, a peach to film on, and we’re enjoying sailing her around such a picturesque track. Dawn rising over the volcanoes was TV gold, as we say.

John and crew were stoked to lead overall through the Messina Strait, kings for a day, but light winds are not our forte.

So upwind for a while, Infanta stretching her legs, a classic boat for a classic race.
