And The Fastnet on starboard now, the worst behind them now, but no squawk from Top Hat :-(

All these brilliant first hand updates give a great sense of just what a challenge this event is. Could be this one is The One of all so far! Everyone who took it on will-justifiably- dine out on it for years :-)
Thar she blows, Top Hat off Three Castle Head approaching The Mizzen. :-)

By text from TrevorG on Baby Blue 15.25 today;

Hot Lemon and Baby Blue are now safely back in Neyland marina (nr Milford Haven). Rest of RI2013 fleet still in Ireland following on tomorrow or later. F me it was rough today!

Cant really say any more than his last statement.....

On one shoulder I'm thinking I wish I was there, on the other I'm thinking I'd have chickened out !

Respect to everyone in , on , involved with it or now out of it for whatever reason

...other than to mention that the Redbay 950 didn't start in Wales and so didn't return there having completed the Irish course with Hot Lemon.

Well - Back home now and Baby Blue is tucked up in the garage for a few weeks.
Once I've caught up with a week's worth of e-mails I'll put together and post a log and stuff that we learnt...
Lots of Go Pro footage but it never looks as rough on the Go-Pro as it does when you're there!

Now - after 4 hours of rough seas crossing the Irish sea followed by a 5 hour drive home and unpacking - I'm off to sleep in my own bed at last!
