I'd been meaning to do a post about the Barcelona race as we've got two moth sailors taking part, Seb Josse, and Jonathan McKee. Unfortunately before I got round to mentioning it they have both encountered problems. PRB lost the top of their rig, and have retired, and Estrella Damm are heading for land to repair a rudder.
Simon Payne caught up with Seb before the start and he plans to be in Weymouth for the Worlds in his Bladerider.
Best of luck to Brit Alex Thomson for the rest of the race. It is cold enough in my workshop at the moment - god knows what it must be like in the Southern ocean!
