The weather has been clouidy and windy this week . We began the week with dinner at the marina bar ; first steak for a while and watched rugby live on the television . Then off to Lapa island and some sailing around the islands. Strong winds and we were lucky enough to meet several groups of humpback whales as they swam between the islands . Quite spectacular .The week remained windy and we were the only yacht sailing for most of the time . We are now anchored in the lee of Pangai island sheltered from the wind . The time is passing quickly here and it won´t be long before we start to head south again .The old sailing ship Picton Castle was in port this week giving us memories of home .
