Rich is making great progress, and one by one overtaking competitors. I wake up in Mallorca each morning listening to the most violent wind, it must be blowing 60-70 knots here in the mountiains. I was most relieved to look at the weather (thanks to our good friends at Passage Weather, www.passageweather.com).
It looks like quite reasonable North Atlantic sailing conditions. It is 18 degrees and partly cloudy in Lanzarote today, however this week is looking at being generally 22 degrees and sunny….So, come on Hews- Get Nude!
The wind is 15-25 knots from the East. Building throughout the day to 25-30 knots E/NE, with waves 2 to 3 metres from the N/NE (which is better than mast height and the 8-10 metres he had a few days ago. Surface pressure is 1020.
The kite will be up, Rich will be surfing and sending it!!!
