...well, you thought we only had six on board, but this morning we were joined by our special guest star crew member, Patrick the pigeon.

He’s a talented sportsman, coming from racing pigeon stock, but new to sailing. He therefore made the mistake of flying into the main sail, before performing a half pike with a triple tuck, followed by a perfect landing (looking a little stunned) on deck. Ned picked him up and put him in the shelter of the cuddy while he recovered. As some of Patrick’s biggest fans, the crew were obviously all keen to get their pictures taken with him around the boat.
