In very light airs (5-7kts) we decided to put the engine on and continue towards Bermuda. Around midnight the boat stopped and there was no forward motion. We inspected everything for damage, fluid loss, breakages, etc. and have concluded that there is major problem with the gearbox, although serviced in Trinidad late last year.
This means we cannot proceed for the time being and will try and retrurn to Nanny Cay, if the winds permit, as this is our closest landfall.
Updates to follow.......we are ok but obviously disappointed, though we did catch another bunch of seaweed!
We are currently drifting at 1 kt in a roughly southerly direction.
