Conditions superb. This is what we’ve been waiting for. Ladies and gentlemen, we are in the zone.
Want to make the most of it while it lasts. No time to sit in cabin writing dispatch.
Rita Savage’s PS: If Roz is on a roller-coaster ride, so are we who read and watch and hope and pray! She has now gone racing ahead of me and the sponsored miles again: 2006:Tom Burnett; 2007 James Frederick; 2009 Aaron Frederick. Grateful thanks to these, and to those who are sending encouraging messages to Roz.
