I'm taking the sunfast up but with the family on board. Might still pop over for a rumba at some stage tomorrow night. Hoping to do the route 66 solo though.

Very cool weekend for SoloIQ!
Huge thanks to Sail IQ and Charlie for organising a Mothership ☺

Race report is simple:
Start with a spinnaker wrap, allowing the fleet to get away and find soft patches, and then do about 746 gybes to avoid getting stuck (for hours on end)! Lots of confused looks from the big boat crews as you sail past them... Get to the finish, cross and than realize that there is a whole flotilla behind you ☺
Wicked after match function! Barbecue and drinks till 6:30am short sleep and another barbecue for breakfast! Awesome bunch of guys, camaraderie is remarkable.
Start photos are on Live Sail Die and are looking great! Suellen has done an awesome job (as always)

Really looking forward to Route1!!!
