Sport Relief challenge yacht Dongfeng rounds Land's End - NW Storm 10 on the way!




The current wind off the Lizard is around 27 knots...


just as well as six hours later it will be well over 60 knots!


Update at 17:43 as the skipper keeps the crew on their toes with another change of course running before the wind...


Update at 17:30 - a big gybe and heading for the Lizard - don't get too close guys the overfalls in the shallow water deep off the Lizard are just not nice - more like #HellOnHighSeas...


Thirty four hours after leaving Belfast the Dongfeng has rounded Land's End - and after making a steady 10 knots for much of the time she is now making up to 17 knots! - not quite quick enough to catch sight of MFV Algrie heading home for Newlyn...



and with a Nor'westerly 10 forecast she might make even more speed - let's hope the celebrity crew including @missAlexJones from the @BBCTheOneShow enjoy the ride.
