    Hello world, today is a nice sunny but not too hot a day. Lots of Exocets whizzing around (flying fish to the unititiated). We are now on port gybe with 2 reefs in the main, making 250T at 7 kn. I understand there are a lot of likes on the face book page, thanks to all of you, and especially Andrew Ford for uploading these blogs.
Looks like another 8 or so days until we arrive in the caribbean, but at least the miles are coming down.
Not too uch else happening, except I overheard a conversation between two of the Challenge boats in the ARC, spoke to Challenge four afterwards, they are about 25 miles nnorth of us, not far really.  There are 16 on board with lots of water for showers etc, we havent showered since Weds, although I did have a wash today, whether I needed it or not! second or third one since last week.
