Well here we are in JoG at last. To say the least it has been an exciting trip so far.

Day 1: Westher fine and snny with light winds. Cyanide met Magellan Alpha at exactly 10.30 hours as planned, just off Falmouth. Somehow we ended up right inside the Fastnet Yacht Race...

150 miles of head on wind causing a severe battering and slamming followed. Ouch! Oooh! Ouch!

Bruised and battered we arrived in Northern Ireland. So far everywhere we have been we have bumped into people who know Alan Priddy!

here is the South Rock Lightship...
