Atlantic low

Well just when we thought we were on the home straight we went smack into a low pressure system (which we knew about). Last night was our worst night with multiple squalls and 45 knot winds recorded. We were all up all night and have been feeling the effects today. This low has now changed the winds for us and means we have to make new plans – it will inevitably delay our arrival at Antigua hopefully by only a day.
So we are readjusting to the new challenges and i suspect that there are one or two more in store if this crossing is anything to go by. Endurance is now order of the day. The good news is that we are all still in fine spirits and know that tomorrow will be different.
