@Giles How’s Alex doing or is everyone still locked down?

Still locked  down.  Things will get better (we hope) over the next few weeks.  Alex's brother, Dave,  runs the best hotel (pub) in town, will be down there as soon as I can to see them all.....

I saw that earlier, shame he's stepping down. I don't think that there's anyone in the UK running an IMOCA campaign now, unfortunately.

that’s clear Graeme. But the way in which he was forced to leave the last Vendée, touched him for sure. Damaged his famous engagements for this race a little perhaps...
It’ s really crazy the love, the fascination, the time, all that he gave for the Vendée, and the little that this race  gave him back... Tough…Very!
