Happy New Year to one and all and may we wish you every success and happiness for 2014.   Our start to the year has been marked by an auspicious occasion.    Sadly not the successful entrapment of a fish but perhaps even better!   With Claire’s right wrist out of action James (in addition to his role as chief breadwinner) has taken on the role of chief breadmaker!   Following instructions to the letter and kneading the bread to perfection, he was patient enough to leave the loaves to prove undisturbed for an hour and the result was spectacular.    We’ll post a photo on the website just as soon as we hit terra firma!    We can also confirm that the loaf we started tastes delicious - it was only great strength of character that prevented us scoffing the whole lot in one go!     Ocean Rainbow continues to cover the miles in her normal steady fashion – we only have another 570 to go!   The winds have been ranging between 15 – 25 knots with the occasional stronger gust and, according to the weather forecast we have on board, we can expect more of this for another couple of days.
