While you are waiting for some decent breeze ,contemplate this. Cornwall has had serious flooding in the Bodmin ,St. austell and Pentowan areas.The trains have been halted in parts of Cornwall and there have been landslides.I went to Spirit of Mystery two days ago and she was a sorry sight! I had to mop the deckhead and cabin sides with a towel!I installed the heater blower and my de-humidifier and hey presto today she is as dry as a bone!So not all bad news. We are all hoping for wind for you but hey, what a blast you've had! I've eaten every bag of porridge with you and drunk the chocolate as well! Kay has stopped me short of using the black bucket though, Women! Have a great time when you arrive, but remember the real party begins when you get back to Cornwall! Cheers, Colin.

Hello Pete
Having sent her some of the early blog print outs I have just taken a call from Barbara from Taunton, she has asked me to send you her very best wishes and to say that she is off to the library for more info tomorrow. She is still so excited about your kindness to her on her trip to Newlyn Fish Festival.

It\'s great to read your weblog Pete. I admire you hugely for parachuting into this racing class after having had you Lugger experience. As I explained in St Malo, after crossing the Atlantic with Chloe May, the 42 ft Percy Dalton designed Gaff Cutter built by Pete Nash in Dartmouth with her awesome rig, my Pogo 40 offers me another challenge and it seems DMS is set up brilliantly with such a good on shore team to help, especially Tom whom we met in St Malo. The race is not over yet for you never know, the northern boats may sink into a hole if the weather Gods allow it, enabling you to slip through with your southerly position...fingers crossed! However, whatever the outcome there will be some cool Champagne and Rum punches ready for you in Guadeloupe...and back here in the UK when you return. May the NE/SE winds blow you safely and quickly into Guadeloupe. Many thanks for all your blogs, they make fascination reading! Simon Costain and boys.

Gini Wells & Year 5 at Littletown

Thank you so much for sharing this adventure so personally with us all. By following the race through the trackers and reading your blog, the Year 5s are learning so much about so many aspects of sailing, the weather and meeting challenges. They are really hooked on the whole package and are asking such intelligent and informed questions now about different aspects of the race. Maybe one day you'll be able to come and meet them and then they can quiz you face to face! Meanwhile, our fingers are crossed for you and we watch the wind arrows anxiously. God speed for the last 700nm! Gini and Year 5

Crack on with the great progress Pete. We are all keeping our fingers crossed for those gorgeous NE Trades for you and the SW breeze for the Northern most Class 40\'s!! Oliver, Joshua and Matthew will not take their DMS T Shirts off until you finish!! Fair winds ...the Rum punches are just over the Western Horizon!! Cheers Simon

G'day Pete,
I'm sure you know from all the other posts that you are bringing an enormous amount of fun and joy to a whole heap of people. your positive demeanour brightens the day for those of us stuck not so adventurous lives - in my case dreary weather and end-of-school year chaos and pressure. "Forward with style for Cornwall" mate and keep that smile going. Best of wishes from down under.
Martin

Every day I start by logging in to see where you are, sometimes even before the morning wake up cuppa! We have loved following you Pete and wish you well for the finish, albeit behind those who went north...tho' maybe those winds will alter yet! Let's hope so...hang on in there.

Having bitten my fingernails to the quick so far in this race, I am now practising Yoga. This to enable me to get my head down and bite my toenails! At least the guys in the north do not have the power of the ''snurgle''! I won't be able to make the finish for this one but we sure as hell will have a Caribbean themed party when you get in! Whistle for the wind matey. Cheers, Colin.

Pete, The excitement of the start at St Malo is now 2 weeks ago in our minds and in miles. The hard work is done, get cruising and aim for a swift final leg. Safe sailing! Imogen, Gillian and Sean

Tony Watts

Having an amazing journey in my mind, Pete, tracking you on the chart every few hours and following your blog - my one and only sailing experience with you on the humble Solent has left an indelible mark! Hopefully you've set yourself up for a really fast finish but a brilliant effort anyway and (most importantly) a wonderful experience that will always stay with you. Best wishes - Tony
