Zig Zag, Zig Zag Phil..... whis you sweet waves to minimize flapping.....

I'm a bit gutted he's pulled out of sailing across as Monday the 6th onward is looking perfect to start a fast run down to the Canaries and as the Trades seem to be holding to N of E from there one could likely get by without needing a spinnaker for the crossing..
