Leg 1 delivery approaching Gibraltar

After 11 days of sailing so far (well with a few rest stops) Lancelot 2 and crew are now on the final section of their voyage with Gibraltar just 100nm away.  THe latest report from skipper Jacko is that they are enjoying a gentle 10 knots breeze, calm seas and sunshine and cruising along at 6kts - perfect conditions!

Throughout the delivery Jacko has paid careful attention to a succession of Low pressure systems making their way accross the Atlantic and battering the West coast of France and Spain. Some careful planning and great team work has seen them avoid the worst of the conditions, so we hope the sunshine continues to welcome them into Gibraltar tomorrow - spot on schedule.

We're then looking forward to welcoming Paul, Michele, Nick and Richard on board for leg 2 - the 1000 mile passage from Gibraltar to Malta. 

Jacko has managed to find enough signal to send us through some photos - checkout the album is on our facebook page!
