Hi Robin

Yes, I am crossing back over to the "Dark" side for a year or so to take Sir Alec Rose's boat Lively Lady around the world starting October 2005 returning July 4th 2006. This is the largest project I have ever taken on and involves raising the best part of a million quid !

The project has two main aims and objectives.

1/ To raise enough money to fullfill Sir Alec's wishes which was "That Lively Lady should be kept in a suitable condition that she offers the oportunity to teach sea skills to young dissadvantaged Adults"
2/ To source a crew of up to 75 young deserving adults to take part in the circumnavigation leg by leg.

The planned route is out through the Panama and back through the Suez stopping in 25 countries to change crew.

As I said, a massive task.

JK will be setting up the website for the project in the next day or so but in the meantime if you want to have a look at Lively Lady I have just put her on permanant show down at Gunwharf Quays Portsmouth.

More Later
Alan P

Look at my wonderful country only one strike around it meaning we have virtualy no wind and the temperature today went to 23 Celcius snd the forecast for tomorrow even warmer. And ofcourse working day although lot of businesses are giving their people day off for enjoying the weather but the company I work for does not, however I can enjoye the scenery out of my window and can open two windows for fresh air.

Sounds like Iceland's warmer than the UK at the moment then, Bogi!

Mind you, I have to take a trip into London this afternoon, so I'm not complaining - at least the tube shouldn't be like an oven.

Sorry Bogi, but the latest forecast suggests that the low moves further north to bring strong winds to Iceland all over the weekend

We're planning to be around Cowes at 7am ish then following the race round the island. Will listen on Ch 77 if anyone wants to give us a shout. PM me if you want our mobile number.

Good luck to everyone racing tomorrow.

Hope to see some of you tomorrow.

Louise & Richard

We saw you heading west around Ventnor around midday.
Too busy to get to the VHF.
Did you continue west?
There were big seas off St Catherine's point, up to 2 metre waves, otherwise a great sail.

Hi John,

We spotted a couple of purple spinnakers but couldn't make out sail numbers - too busy hanging on!

Yes, we continued west, and because we were on the inshore side of the race yachts we got caught in the breaking waves off St Catherine's which was interesting, although the most difficult sea for us was the rolling head sea off Bembridge (would have been "following" for you).

Did you finish in a good position?
