" A LADY TRIP " Sailing around the World,,
Mon 5 Apr 2010 21:05
SUNDAY 4th APRIL 2010 EASTER SUNDAY.
06.00hrs beautifull day again,
However there was a big issue over water again, second time in a few weeks. Stupid
Upset the whole ship.
Anyway, we decided to leave Ua Pou and head for " Nuka Hiva " a distance of 25miles NW
We tied the Rib on behind , raised anchor. and set sail, One reef in the Main and the staysail.
The wind was blowing 25 / 28. knots E
Average speed , 7.2 knots
13.30hrs We dropped anchor in Taiohae, The main port in " Nuku Hiva ", a fine big harbour for a change, we also put down a stern anchor to
keep her facing the swell.
Crazy Horse, and Ocean Jasper , were already here plus about another 10 yachts. not on the World ARC
" Bob " from Ocean Jasper came to A Lady and downloaded some very good photos of A Lady under sail.. thanks Bob.
Later , we did some house work,including cleaning the windows, Cricky, the amount of salt on these, even after a short sail is amazing.
19.00 hrs , after a lovely swim, Donal prepared a leg of lamb for dinner, including all the veg, roast potatoes, and GRAVY,
When finished, We watched a W W 2 film called the " ROCK " It was about the American G.I.s in The Galapagos , A good film. Historical.
On Deck later, we watched the " Milky Way" " the Southern Cross" " Orion " " Sirious " none of these can be seen from the northern hemisphere.
except a continuation of the milky way,
Thats it for now,
