And still we head east. We are at least climbing North Slowly. We so hope
in the next few days to get winds that will allow us to head North quicker.
I think we are on the same Latitude as Mauritius , so if we head Due North
we should be at the island. The winds this morning were just starting to
get out of hand when they died off. So there i was at the Helm , Mike and
Conner sleeping , the sun is coming up and of all the things I spot in the
water.... A TREE. Yup , a tree , the top few branches were sticking up out
the water and we were on a Direct line with it. I had just enough time to
steer the boat down and out its path. Just goes to show , one can be on
this massive ocean of water and there will be an obstacle in the way.
Mathematically speaking , that's like 1 in 10 0000 chance.
