It is extremely frustrating, in race terms, where I am right now.
Everyone in front of me are speeding off to the finish in a different
weather system. I am stuck in the transition of no wind, and everyone
behind is catching up!

Luckily I have my friend Yannick Bestaven to keep me company!

Roxy has been slipping along gently all day, but the wind has been
slowly decreasing. At sunset, we were almost stationary.

However, everything around me is so amazing, that I can easily forget
the stress of the race. The sky is so crystal clear that you can see for
miles and miles, so far that you can see the tops of the clouds that are
way beyond the horizon. Roxy is sailing like a dream, with the code 0
up, and a little keel to leeward, she slips along at 3 knots in only one
knot of wind. Then, after sunset, I was inside the boat at the computer
and I could hear the little squeak of dolphins chatting to each other.
So I went on deck. The slither of the moon had already disappeared and
the night was black, but I could sea streaks of light in the sea like
litte torpedos. The dolphins played alongside Roxy and I perched on the
edge of the deck to get as close to them as possible as they popped up
to breathe next to me. It was just one of the many magic moments that
are so precious and will stay in my memory for ever.

As always, the dolphins were a good sign, and the wind started to
increase, and now I've even got the keel up to windward! Maybe there's a
way out of this trap after all!

Good night
Sam x
