Addictive Sailing has posted a great video of Kite during the approach to the finish on the last day of the Normandy Channel Race:
Listen to Hannes’ perspective after rounding Tuskar Rock in this radio interview on the Normandy Channel Race site.
Note that he is listed as skipper — Greg feels lucky to be allowed to sail with him . . .
Also note that the interview ends abruptly. The connection was bad and dropped, but it sounds as though the guys had something up their sleeve. Ah ha, now we know the rest of the story . . .
Overall, we had a good day yesterday. It was lovely to start with a daylight rounding of Tuskar Rock. It is quite pretty and we didn’t see it last year. Then, the run down SE Ireland was pretty smooth with a few big wind holes that kept us active.
This morning saw us round Fastnet in daylight as well. We’re in bigger breeze now, enjoying it while we can. Hope you all have a good day.
It’s June 2, and all is well on board. There are lots of seabirds, including puffins. The sunshine is great, and how different it is to see Tuskar Rock this time around.
Check out the video of the dolphins accompanying Kite near Land’s End this afternoon.
