We had such a huge Christmas lunch we couldn’t fit in the ‘figgy pudding’ so we pigged out on that today!   The Jessie May Trust Christmas Puds really are delicious – if anyone from JMT is reading this please pass our thanks to Chris and the whole team.   We are still in touch with Hecla which is great but this time Jon is behind us.  We reckon it’s because we have a deal that the first one in to Martinique cooks dinner!   We also set up a side bet yesterday, the first one to catch and land a fish buys the first round of drinks!   We think we’re on to a winner there although James is going to try out a different technique to land the fish if there is a next time – it’s called patience!    The seas are still rolly and we have had a couple of squalls pass through with no warning but as the only sail we are using is the yankee we are under control.   Our average speed is creeping up (5.8kts) and we are eating up the miles with only 1270 to go.
