Ian Hoddle, racing Two Handed with Conrad Manning in his Figaro II, Rare, contacted the RORC Media team this morning at 0900 BST as the duo were just north of the Isle of Lewis:

“It’s been a wild night with big seas, but we managed to overtake two boats since yesterday because we were literally flying!” commented Conrad Manning. “We don’t know what the wind speed was last night as our windex broke off two days ago, but I would estimate 50+ was the highest gust. Currently looking for the food bag. When I find it, it will be Mexican Tuna Pasta for lunch then most likely curry for dinner. Ian is at the helm taming us to safety. Everything is soaked through except for one dry jumper and half a sleeping bag. I am typing this with one boot off trying to dry the inside of it. Both of us are doing well and tiredness has not set in yet.”

We'd love to hear from you!
