Day 3 out of Bermuda and we seem to have a problem with the altenator not charging the batteries. Fortunately we have the wind generator and a solar panel but in the light winds they are only providing sufficient energy for the basic essentials. Consequently I will be unable to access emails everyday and we are hand steering, sailing the traditional way!
Everything has settled down to a routine and as we are doubling up on watches a lot of the day is spent sleeping. The blogs may become less frequent because of the battery situation but all else is well and there is no problem with GPS at present.
