The Boss and I would like to send a big tusen tack to all the vänner of Felicia who have sent us SMSs each dag. We also want to apologize for not acknowledging them for a couple dagar as we didn't notice the inbox on the Iridium phone was full and could not take any more SMSs. After painfully deleting the old SMSs (we hate to let go of our SMSs!!), the new SMSs came in. So tusen tack again for the SMSs.
Idag has been a good sailing dag as the winds changed to the southwest which is great for the point of sail that we are looking for. We are now on starboard tack and sailing bra. The last tjugo fyra timmar we have sailed ett hundra fyrtio nm, which is right at sex knots per timme. We did leave the engine on last night as there were really light winds, but we have had the sails out since this morning and making great time in a gentle breeze at femtton to tjugo knots to go along with gentle rolling waves. At this pace, we should get to Gibraltor in about fem dagar, with tre more to Torreveija, Spain.
Det är molnigt idag but fairly warm. The moon the last two kväll has been spectacular as it has been full or nearly full and quite large in the sky. When it comes up, it lights up the entire bow of Felicia to the point that I thought I might need to put on my 'moon shades'!
Ok, now it is time for me to go cook some of my special home made Spaghetti Carbonara......you know.....the kind that comes in a package and takes fem minutes to cook!!
Now for some words to Vivi from Bosse:
Har du ringt om låset? Kanske du även kan kolla vad de vita glidlisterna till luckan kostar.
That is all for now.
