A bit of a turn of events as our steering mechanism failed last night. It's
not a big deal but unfortunately not something we can fix at sea without the
right tools and hardware. We installed our emergency tiller and are now
hand-steering the boat with the tiller. Luckily, the sea is very calm and
there is a gentle breeze. We're managing about 4 knots in speed and are
heading south of Barbados. Nothing like a bit of a test towards the end :-)
but we are all fine. Kids are watching a movie at the moment as for the
first time the sea is flat enough to do so.
