Well, lightning lightning and more lightning was
the theme for last night!!! i do wonder how many times you can sail in close
proximity to a lightning storm before probability says you should be struck?! a
few more im hoping..
its windy squally and wet..not the 20 degrees of
sunshine portugal promised!!
What a beautiful sun rise, gentle breeze on our
beam, full sails, all lovely... Gettting a little bit squally ahead but we're
hoping to squeeze in behind them we've had to reef as the wind is increasing but
its a warmer breeze, it finally feels like we're near portugal!! and lets not
forget to day is PANCAKE DAY, so I am going to start making some pancakes for
brunch, we have sugar and lemon and maple syrup Yeah!!! Happy pancake day!!now
what shall i give up for lent??...
Position at 1200 UTC 8/3
24 hour run 140 nm
Wind E F2
Less than 300 nm to Madeira so I am expecting to
arrive there around breakfast time on Thursday 10th.
There are still some squalls around but they are
more isolated and less intense.
