Diane mentioning the internet in Lanzarote wasn’t as fast as she might like, observed “I need to go to bed before I launch this computer across the expansive marble foyer”. While Diane is hunting for WiFi connections, in the hopes of sending a picture, it’s Tim blogging again.

The Star, Toronto’s largest circulation has item about the race committee’s decision that Diane was not allowed to continue the Mini Transat. It is a follow up from last week’s piece on Diane sailing in under jury rig.

Diane’s home club, Ashbridges Bay Yacht Club, acknowledged Diane at the Racing Awards Banquet last Saturday. Diane was awarded the Rear Commodore’s Commendation for Courage & Perseverance. The recognition was accompanied by a bottle of Goslings Black Seal rum. When asked if the rum was belated recognition of Diane’s win in the Bermuda 1-2, RC Paul Brennan laughed and referenced the many Dark & Stormy nights on the Bay of Biscay. Diane is gratified with the commendation. And her support team are gratified she’s offered to share when she returns.

“Thank you Ashbridges Bay for all of your continuing Support” -Diane 😉

    Hi Diane, sorry to hear that your boat let you down. You have done an amazing job keeping the boat together enough to sail one third of the distance. Under the conditions that you faced, the problems with your batteries and the debris you faced on the ocean, one can only be in awe of the job you’ve done. May your return to ABYC be exciting. All the best to you and Paul and your future in sailing.

    Andrew & Jen
