Skye Blue under the stars
Wed 23 Nov 2022 16:30
We gybed this morning! We are still rolling along at around 7 knots with headsail only. The seas are a bit calmer but still unsettled in the force 5 wind.
There is no moon yet but we are being treated to the brilliance of the sky at night with the early and bright appearance of Jupiter followed by Venus, Mars and millions of stars. Orion rolled out of bed in the East early this morning and stood guard protecting us from giant waves and dangerous sea creatures through the rest of the night.
The crew are all well and getting used to the rolling motion and eating much more fruit than normal! We are making good headway and are only 2350 miles from St Lucia, we are keeping South to avoid the light winds developing in the North and West and may put the main up tomorrow (we will let you know in tomorrow's blog!).
