The last five days have gone past in a blur.
It has been a long day of fiddling, getting my boat back up to racing spec and noting all the wear and tear that our head long charge across the Atlantic has caused.
I am sitting on the TGV on my way back to Lorient after quite a tour of Europe in the last couple of days and looking forward to home; in the back of my van parked next to the mini.
When my mini arrived back in Lorient after the mini transat last year I was not there to collect it.
After 19 days and the weather systems from hell, finally the finish line seemed tangibly close.
The Sailing Leg one of this years Charente Maritime, mini transat race was complicated to say the least.
A first look back Well, I’m here!
I guess it is time to reflect on what I am doing here
This process will be going on for the next four days to every competitor in the transat.
I think today was the start of a tense countdown to the start.
