Still at penyryn and will be there another few days. did not hear if he went to church yesterday, and this is not his anchor position as we still cannot hear him well enough.

all well but not much wind last night. Alan is hard to hear now and GHRadio will be off air for a month so trevor on Villamee is going to talk to him each day for an update. He will pass these on to GHR and I will put them on YIT but these reports will be delayed in posting.
wow. Sounds good. Alan had to hove to for about 15hr last night due strong head winds. It will be at least another 500 miles before he heads north east.
AWOB. Good sailing now
Am not hearing Alan at GHRadio so these reports now coming via our wonderful relay - Trevor on Villamee currently in Fuluga Fiji
low has passed and all well on board.
Frestay now fixed. Wind will move to SW 20-25 tomorrow so he will have plenty to do.
Has a broken fore stay to fix this morning. (Sorry I put back stay in before my brain started working).
