May 17th 2022 08:23 AMMark’s knockdown and ETA 28th May
KNOCKDOWN! Had a short poor quality Sat phone call from MARK yesterday in a building gale taking it easy, but worried about his repaired forestay and headsail furler extrusion gyrating. ( he has a damaged forestay and staysail inner forestay.) We were able to pass a weather forecast. Late last night he sent a short text message on his YB3 unit that he was HOVE TO in a Storm Force 9 gale under storm Trysail only, had a couple knockdowns and that both his Sat phones were now not working and that he will see us all in Les sables on Saturday 28th May! He is about 900miles west of Les sables d’Olonne at the moment and the storm has moved rapidly north.. Windyty is showing about 30kts SW and in 5-6mtr seas now. #GGR2022
