After an eventful and entwining start with close quarter manoeuvring, we enjoyed a friendly rivalry with some of our closest and dearest friends. Following a fast fetch to Sicily, we were relieved that the main had’t fallen down again! This was followed by a night of playing the shifts that saw us draw even with Quokka and Noonmark.

We had a 20knot blast spinnaker reach out of Messina, which consolidated our favourable position with the rest of the fleet. Local rockstar Artie is now firmly in our sights and the dolphins are long gone!

Now chasing the leaders under a pack of white sails with a gentle breeze it will be a tactical night of hunting for wind up to Stromboli.
