Yet another bad weather day with no swims due to Storm Ernesto.

This has been our third non-swim day in little over a week - August has not been kind to us.

We no longer have a buffer of distance, in fact, we are now nearly 10km behind and have a smaller and smaller chance to catch up.

This has resorted to drastic action on board - I will try to catch a current in the middle of the night, one that we would ordinarily sleep through.

The weather is meant to improve in the next few hours, so the hope is that by the time we head out at 01.30am tomorrow we will safely be able to swim.

Finger's crossed, hey.

No swimming done - Total 261.79 miles (421.32km)
