Nice to see youu too Charles - yes we saw Dave Simpkins helmet in the water first and slowed down and drove around him as there were rescue boats nearer - never saw a yellow flag though ........
R7 is a Phantom Evolution with an Evinrude 200HO on it - they are doing the whole championship and Egypt as well - it's their first season racing but I think they've got the bug already!
Looking forward to seeing the photos from the passage - it was amazing driving through there! The other memorable bit was the North side of the Island on saturday - big atlantic rollers doing over 70mph and 74mph on the GPS up the start run - it was a proper offshore race and we can't wait for next year!
