As many of you know the boys have been sitting like caged animals on Para-Anchor sea anchor for the last seven days at the mercy of the weather.
Fortunately, a change is on the way. A window of opportunity is opening up that should allow Team Gallagher the chance to make a dash for Cape Reinga. The wind is abating, the current is favourable, the boys are rested, it’s time to come home.
So as the guys celebrate James Blake’s 25th birthday today and we all bid goodbye to 2011, we hope and pray that the Tasman will come to the party.
