Position as at 12.00 midday UTC 6th of December
was a lovely with lots of sunshine and we celebrated that we are over half way
with some bubbly. I sent the picture up yesterday afternoon.
we did not get much sleep as the wind gusted up to 45 kts and it was
raining. Tom was at the helm when all this happened and it was all hands
to deck to take all the sails down and we were just running on bare
is pouring with rain and gusting up to 33 Kts. A lot of the fleet are
suffering from the same weather conditions. We are still quite comfortable
and I am now getting plenty of practise in steering to compass
heavily reefed, we prefer to get to St Lucia a bit lot later but safely.
This is not exactly what we expected from the tropics, but we are taking all
this in our stride and actually quite enjoying it.
A cup of
hot chocolate goes down well..
