Phil reports from Imerys Clean Energy

Position 2nd

“I spent yesterday afternoon making repairs. One of the valves for the water ballasts is broken & I’ve been bailing a lot, but I haven’t found the source of this water yet… I also found my rudders were loose!! So relieved to resolve that problem.

“Last night was the first stable night – I slept so well and was able to recover, it’s such a relief to have left the depressions behind us.

“Soon the wind will go aft and reduce as we get into more anticyclonic conditions that will ride us south to the tropics. Currently we’re going upwind, but hopefully this changes very soon! Phil.”
