Great start off the beach and lead the fleet for a while (see video above).  Beat to the Forts and spinnaker up in the dying breeze for a close encounter with a moored tanker which required a quick about face to go round it but out into the channel eventually.  Various wind conditions in a rather slow crossing including no wind at all right in the middle of the East going shipping lane in the dark which was interesting.  Usual guessing game as to our position in the fleet as we approached the finish from the West and most dismayed by Alchemist radioing in but OK when it became clear they were retiring.  Quite tricky getting to the finish against a strong tide and not a lot of wind but good result with a third overall after 22 hours.
