Well. I went to bed at six and slept like a baby on a flat sea. Not due on until ten, I wash up, washed and in the cockpit by 9:20 to see Bear and Beez with cheeky grins on their faces.
09:40 we went from depth measure - - - to 130 metres below and slowly dropped to 30 metres.
We made the Cape Lighthouse at 10:00 (Chagos time), the first promontory ten minutes later and the final pointy bit at 10:25.
To say we are thrilled is an understatement. My Nemesis Journey is complete and The Beezers have the Indian Ocean behind them.
Plan. To head to Ambaru Bay for a few nights R+R (in our case Rest and Repair). Expect to be in Hellville with comms some time soon, will advise.
Last night before I went off Bear managed to head-butt the winch and made a small gash on the right of his forehead, I have threatened him with a hard hat to which he replied Well when you hit me you shouldn’t leave a mark. Didn’t stop him enjoying korma and rice and munching through his tuck box........
All is really well indeed from the Top of Madagascar.................
