The adventures of Skipper Splodge and mack
Thu 27 May 2010 12:16
Well the last 24 hours have been adventure, it has left all of us very very tired. After passing Fastnet, we headed for M3, the wind picked up which was good, and we made good time to the buoy which we passed at 1650 yesterday. Didn't stop, did have a little photo session tho.
Reefed the headsail, and furled the main away, and headed on for K2, the sea was quite choppy, and made for long night hand steering. We all feel like we have had a 3 hour workout in the gym. We didn't get a lot of sleep either, so this is why we are all tired.
Wind has died away, and the sea has turn into a lovely blue, with long swell as you would expect, so boat as settled down, and steering is a little less effort.
A few breakages, one of the oil lamps, and the autopilot
The next buoy should be in sight once I've finished this update
