The wind is back! Finally we have some decent wind, albeit from the south it is a welcome change from that heinous area behind us that held us for so many hours. I’m sailing a direct course to the finish line at speed so it feels great. Congratulations to all of those skippers that are in port, what a fantastic job they did. The situation on board is very static at the moment and as I mentioned before, I am anxious to be finished and move on to the next stage. The family is on their way to France and will be flying overhead in about 6 hours from now. I’ll keep an eye for the light in the window. The radio interviews from the media center are always a highlight of the day. It’s great to talk with the folks and let them know what is happening on board. I wish I could speak French better. That’s one of those projects that never seem to be finished.   

Take care,

Derek
