Noon pos 19.52N 42.11W still heading SW towards St
Lucia, now about 1100 miles out, not sure if that is a long way or not, distance
has taken on a very odd persective in the last few days. Speed is better
as the wind is up a bit, but sea is very confused with swell coming from all
over making it necessary to hand steer until it settles down and Vera can take
over. Currently doing between 6 and 8 knots over the ground with a swell of 2-3
metres rolling us around.
The moon was back wit us last night and it lit up
all of my 9-12 watch in spectacular fashion, it has been absent in recent days,
so I have had to make do with making pictures in the stars. Moon
gazing big time last night though, the boat was sailing right
down the track that the moonlight was making on the ocean and I
was loving it, I hope you saw it too!!
Bear in the moon.
