distance travelled since Tinamare 262 miles in 50 hrs
Course 048 rhumb line. Distance to go 3259 depending on future weather
Winds Easterly 10-15knots Close hauled.
We have been sailing along at 5-6 knots and we are now perfecting the
crab crawl as we are out of practice at doing everything at 45 degrees.
It is hard work even to make a cup of tea and pass it up on deck and
just when you think it is all going well a big swell comes along and you
slosh it everywhere. we are slowly perfecting the art of cooking and
Martin made a really good corn beef hash in the pressure cooker last
night. bread lasts 2 days so i only have to do it every other day but
Ann's Remoska cooker is amazing.
Sleeping is quite hard as there is quite a bit of swell and often we are
flungup in the air by a big wave only to meet our pillows coming back up
to us but it always takes a bit of adjusting and we are fine. We had 3
dolphins play alongside on our first day,a few flying fish but none have
landed on deck for breakfast yet, and chris has just seen a tuna jumping
but not got the rod out yet.
PS We will only be updating the log every 2 to 3 days.
