    Brexit, WTF

    LONDON - For the first time in seven years, the Eurozone's economy grew quicker than the UK's last year, data from Eurostat confirmed. Eu has done very well! The unemployment rate in the Euro Area was steady at 8.1 percent in October of 2018, the same as in each of the previous three months but higher than market expectations of 8 percent. It remained the lowest jobless rate since November of 2008. Unemployment Rate in the Euro Area averaged 9.71 percent from 1995 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 12.10 percent in February of 2013 and a record low of 7.30 percent in October of 2007. UK currently at 4 and US even lower

    The French maths teacher would be going. Do we know what he uses as storm tactics? Interesting that with these boats keep going appears to be the better strategy.

    I had coppercoat applied a couple of years ago and it has worked for me. In the Med through this summer there has been a slime build up but half an hour in the water with a sponge makes short work of that!

    Suzy appears to have had a little wiggle on the last week, has been closing consistently.
  8. I have assymetrics and code 0 on my cruising cat and do tend to use the 0 more often. The bottom up furling on code 0 is easier and more reliable than the top down required for the A2. We have a pole and pole out the 0 to run deep, but that's being lazy as cruising sailors are!

    Has Are Wiig enough diesel to run his engine all the way around?!? He has had impressive boat speed over the last week, caught up and now in probably a real 3rd / 4th.

    Nail-biting, according to windy models DF may have more wind and a better angle at the end, but will they be close enough!?!

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    Dongers can loose the extra point if the fail to finish as Brunel are less than 24 hrs behind. Can also still win the race without winning a leg, all to play for!
