LP transat prep continues
Another morning sail on Tuesday, full sails for seven or so miles out, then the Parasailor in light winds back to the anchorage. In the afternoon we rented a car until Saturday and went around the island, stopping at very cute Mogan harbour. We kinda given up on local bars - not many if any ARC sailors are allowed off their boats, it seems.
Today (Wednesday) we went through a load of safety stuff, wrote more lists of food, and went shopping at the chandlery where I spent another €2k on super-trendy lifejackets and other boaty junk.
The late-afternoon super-organised shopping trip for non-perishables cost only €300. I separately bought a load of cheap spare food (ok, coffee and tinned fruit) at under half Carib prices.
The weather forecast for Sunday is looking unusual - one option might be to head west (downwind) around the non-typical low pressure system in the early part of the week and then south on white sails from Wednesday, but I might have been watching the Vendee Globe racing too much, not sure?
