Here is Sir Robin's update from on board Grey Power on Saturday morning:

Saturday, November 08, 2014

A long night spent huddled in the cockpit adjusting the course as the wind was light and variable. Wisps of Cirrus cloud, in a north/south line, showed clearly in the moonlight and are an indication of what to expect shortly. The sooner the better I am sure everyone close to my position would say as the wind is currently from the North-West and we are bashing again.

We are close hauled and those conditions do not suit my boat.The boat is fine but needs a wind veer to get back to overtaking those in front. Probably got four hours sleep last night because I was up most of it because the wind was fickle, which means constant adjustments, and without the wind instrument I have to do it.
