Chiscos - Atlantic Cruise
Sat 3 Dec 2011 19:28
We now have 951 miles to go until we get to St Lucia.
The trip is going well. At the moment, the winds are steady from the E/ESE and Chiscos is charging along at about 6.5 knots. The parasailor is up and the sun is shining!
It has got appreciably warmer over the last few days and we can see it will be even warmer by the time we get to the Caribbean.
At present we hope to be in ST Lucia next weekend, but we are concerned that an area of low pressure is developing to the East of the Caribbean which will result in very light winds. This will inevitably slow our progress. Some yacht have already finished - but we are one of the smallest (and consequently one if the slowest) boats in the fleet, so we will be towards the end of the fleet to finish.
As before, we have been passing our time with sailing the boat, fishing, playing and listening to music, whilst also doing a bit of sun bathing! (It's a tough life!)
The skipper and crew playing a few 'tunes'! I think we were playing 'no woman no cry!'
