Yes, here we in our usual place at the back of the fleet in very light winds (I think its all the provisioning that Susan has hidden aboard). We even tried the APC, but to little avail due to the wind direction - not even it being mostly orange mostly any difference.
Anyway, we had a good view of the other boats (we did cross the line in the middle of the fleet) as they made their way down the Sir Francis Drake Channel and off we went for the trip to St. Georges, Bermuda.
After clearing Jost van Dyke we were greeted by dolphins - a fantastic way to say goodbye to the BVI's We put a line out, got a fish, but it was too big for the line so we lost another lure! The sunset was, however, wonderful. Followed by the crescent moon and millions of stars, a trully great experience.
This morning we hailed Kalimba who took some photo's of Andromeda with all her sails up - looking forward to seeing them.
Having a great but slow sail on a sparkling sea.....only 1 sail on the horizon now.
More in due course......
