Shakwe Update No 1 Horta to Belfast

Tue 28 Aug 2012 12:13
As at 1200 hours UTC 28 August
Position: N40 17 44   W028 35 11                                    Distance run over 24 hours: 109 NM
Hoisted Main and mizzen sails. No wind. Motored north through the night and still motoring but added 30 degrees to try to reduce rolling. Lost lots of diesel from cans as refused to be tied down (them - not me, but close!!!)
Jim poorly with mal de mere but looking a little better after a night's sleep. Need some wind to make life more pleasant.
