Jonathan & Pippa Wallis - Fastnet Race Days 5 Wed 7 Aug and into day 6 Thu 8 Aug

Awful frustration last night as wind disappeared entirely just as we rounded the Lizard.  Spent 8 hours bobbing around on an inky Black Sea. Visited by dolphins who looked sorry for us and a huge number of eels at one point.

Wind came again at 4 am and gradually increased and we are now romping towards Plymouth with the Eddystone rock our next landmark. Hope to be in Plymouth by 2 pm.
