Thursday 9th December



Another good day's sailing. The winds are allowing us to make 170-180 nm per day and right now at 19:20 we estimate about 520 nm to go so possible ETA of the evening of Sunday 12th. Having said that, wind is forecast to drop slightly so no bets yet on exact timing.


Just finished dinner courtesy of Mother Dan who followed a lovely chorizo risotto with a surprise almond chocolate praline with fresh coffee – wonderful!


And then, of course, conversation turned to booze – what we’re going to drink when we land, cocktails we have know, embarrassing drunken moments, impressions of a bottle of beer being poured, etc. Could this be a symptom of 19 days without an alcoholic drink? Maybe we’ll find that when we land we’re actually now anti-alcohol and we'll never drink again!
