Stormvogel - off L-Ahrax Point Mellieha
Rushed up to the Comino channel and was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time just as Kerisma BOV was coming into the channel. Weather is lousy.........raining, wind maybe 3 knots (!), thunder and lightening on the horizon to the NW. Then I drove to L-Ahrax point where Stormvogel was sailing past, but a bit too far out for me to get a good shot - especially in the poor rainy visibility. Besides those two boats was unable to see any other boats approaching on the horizon. Visibility is not so good in the rain but in this wind think it will be at least another couple of hours until the next boat reaches the channel.
As more boats finish across the line there has been a change in the overall first position. Alegre has gone down to second place with Chestress 2 (a J-133) now in overall first.
