With this wind, and even although we are battened down,should make it to Iles du Salut, French Guiana by tomorrow afternoon. This has been a very hard passage and we are both longing for it to be over. Have waves crashing over us every now and again but that too is easing.
Looks like our offering to Neptune was not welcome! Perhaps he did not like the whisky that we offered him along with a watch, and some money.
