Today is Wednesday, 14.1.13 and all jobs on the list have been completed. Maggie helped me with the provisioning and getting El Corte Inglés to vacuum pack some the meat. I have even been able to sort out my on-board wifi connectivity, a constant source of frustration if things are not working properly. The weather has been kind, a few showers now and then, but the temperature is around 20C. My aim is to send an email a day to my BLOG to update my position and let you know how I am getting on.
The owner of Kahurangi, a famous 62-ft classic racer from the 1950s, invited me to join him for a sail on Sunday. The sun was out and a gentle breeze enabled us whilst sailing to feast on Spanish delicacies and a Russian salad. I hope to have such fine weather going across the Atlantic and having checked the weather forecast, I don't think I could wish for a better start.
