Tarita was put on deck,and her hull supported by steelarms from the cradle.Strong straps was tied to 8 different locations of the yacht.Anton and me secured the rigging,cleaned the propellershaft,and replaced an anode.Electriity was switched off,and the yacht was locked.We met the captain,and passed the reservekeys.At the moment we learned to know that the weathersituation was rather unstable on the North Atlantic,but E.T.A in Willemstad remains January 31.Tarita will now travel to Bilbao,pass the Atlantic to Venezuela,and hopefully arrive in Curacao January 31.

Anton and me left Antwerpen by car around 20.30,and drove through Holland to Osnabruck in Germany were we stopped at an Hotel.Tomorrow we drive over Puttgarten through Denmark,and hope to arrive in Trosa around midnight.Next time we will hopefully be in the tropics.See you then!
