We intended to go from Antigua to Nevis/StKitt then
to St.Martin and on to the BVIs.
The extra day in Antigua eliminated the Nevis stop
and now underway we are considering continuing straight to the BVIs although
there is no wind (a first in these parts) and diesel is low so we may have to
I'll be checking weather in a minute and if we have
prospects of wind then we should be ok to go in one hop.
We are invited to a full Irish Breakfast with
Champagne on christmas morning in chez Clair Burke on BVIslands. Might have
something to do with the enthusiasm to get there.......
I know ye dont want to know this but its a Hot day
here, about 6 knots of wind behind us and we are moving at 6 knots which means
we get no breeze. Glad I fitted the bimini to give us some shade. Everyone
is reading and sleeping..Swim planned in about half and hour. Assuming some
folk wake up. Steam will rise. i wonder are there sharks around
Had a lazy day yesterday finsihed with another meal
at East meets West restaurant run by Chris and Debbie as of 3 weeks
left at about 7am this morning.
Snacks abound as ever. No exercise either so pounds
are piling on. So much for hot weather reducing the appetite. Like Mich
Desjoyeux who won two Vendee Globes single handed round the world races we seem
to have also put on weight during our little cruise. Common factor?? Joan Lynch
provisioning for both. hmmmmm I suspect he was in better shape
FAME!!!!! our picture is in yachting world. kinda,
in amongst a bunch of boats, in a small section, emmmm i wouldnt rush out to buy
it. UNless you want to see the picture of the ladies in swimsuits
from girlsforsail who arrived in santa outfits (cut down versions!) without
an engine at the end of the ARC. Not that that detracts from our aerial shot or
right , time to dial up and then throttle back to
