We finally managed to store the last of the food and spares, downloaded the most recent podcasts and refreshed our Week & New Scientist e-papers. So we should not be short of things to do and if we are really stuck we could even talk to each other. The WiFi in Las Galletas defied every effort I made to get it to talk to our booster (first time that has happened) so all the downloads, weather and chart updates had to be done sitting in the cockpit (one disadvantage of a metal boat). Wouldn't have been so bad except that a very voluble Russian on the next boat was intent on improving his English while smoking his way through a truly vast number of foul smelling cigarettes. I think they may have been made from recycled Ukrainian wellington boots left over from the Soviet era quota system.
