Steven and Shaun are fundraising for ORBIS by taking part in La Solidaire du Chocolat a trans Atlantic race celebrating the cocoa trade between France and Mexico.
All is well onboard, we have had 24 hours of very nice sailing where we can at last think a little about boat speed. Today we are taking the opportunity of getting a bit back south nearer the thumb line. On the first windy night, the Windex was blown clean off the top of the mast, so now the B&G system only works on course and we blew the power supply for the onboard computer so that we now have to wire in a laptop. Apart from that, our biggest concern is that we may run out of Earl Grey tea.
