Vendee skipper tells of what she will and won't miss

Roxy skipper Sam Davies, who is hoping to cross the Vendee Globe race line in third place, is thinking of home.

But with less than a week to go she has already made a list of what she will miss from the solo, non-stop circumnavigation.

They include:
– Sunsets and sunrises
– Peace and quiet (no mobile phone)
– Private “Ipod karaoke” moments
– Being able to eat chocolate whenever I want
– The vacation radio
– The dolphins
– Not having to brush my hair every day
– The stars and the moon

Things I won’t miss:
– The infamous “bucket”
– Bailing out bilges
– Stacking

Things I’m looking forward to:
– My “cheri”
– My cats
– Fresh fruit
– A cold beer
– A hot shower
– Drinking tea out of a real mug (with a handle)
