Here's a backlog of video which has been accumulating on
board since we last had a fast internet connection. This lot took just over one
minute to upload from the café at Newport's 'Mission to
Bermuda Refuel. Loading duty free diesel in Bermuda. Not
exactly a bargain at $5.90 for one US gallon! Phil from Tehani-Li fills cans,
Nick from World Cruising Club enjoys a middle eastern coffee.
Foggy Newport. The first scenes are at sea on the final
day of our run up from Bermuda, fog and rain but warm and dry below. At Newport

of Magnetic Sky, who eventually arrives out of the mists.

this kind of thing in Europe.
