Day 15, Antigua to Portsmouth
Tue 28 Apr 2020 23:06
From zero to 50 knots! It really has been a case recently of all or nothing!
We are back in storm sail mode and the squalls are coming think and fast. The rain is heavy, its cold and very dark......however it should be over in about 36 hours and then we will have some nice SW winds to take us on the final stretch.
The helming is tough at the moment as the sea state is a bit rolly, but the team are doing well and only 1 round up so far!!
To keep everyone warm its been hot meals all day, Porridge, corned beef hash and then Chicken Tikka Masala for dinner but it looks like there is a disaster on the cards.......we will run out of coffee tomorrow. NOOOOOOOOOOOO! The tea drinkers are fine, however this trip there has been an unprecedented run on the coffee and sugar.
Miles done - 3030
miles to go - 800
coffee consumed - 4 large tubs!
sugar consumed - 2 kg
Apart from the impending doom of coffeegate, all is well onboard.
Hopefully see you all soon!
