2nd August 2011 (Matthew Chapman)

5pm - The wind picked up through the night so although we've had a cracking sail for the last 20hrs or so the direction hasn't been good.

We're heading South with the winds coming from the same direction so progress has been slow though we are visually in sight of a few more boats which is promising. Little bit of sea sickness from some of the crew this morning, the more able bodied crew showed no mercy, easily picking off the unfortunate trainees in the murder mystery!
