3rd August 2011 (Matthew Chapman)

6.43pm We finished the race at 1430 local time this afternoon after the race committee brought the time limit forward to give us time to get to Hamlstad.

The trainees were elated to be finished the race but disappointed when I told them how far it was to go to get to Halmstad. Then they were relieved when they found out how fast we can motor but then mildly sea-sick once we started steaming into the weather. Highs and lows! ETA Halmstad 1000 local time on Friday.
