MacArthur's diary - day 10
Ellen MacArthur's diary for BBC Sport Online
In her latest email to BBC Sport Online, Ellen MacArthur is looking for a little luck and a little air.

We're all rather becalmed.

We had a few gusts of breeze in the night, but this morning we have no more wind at all and we have lost a lot of miles.

This afternoon we ought to be picking up a little south-easterly, but nothing very constant. We can't say anything, it all depends very much on the little breaths of air and luck.

We're a little disappointed but we're okay. This morning I'm studying the weather, and the goal is to go as fast as possible in the same direction as the others.
