Yesterday we left Nuku Hiva a stunningly beautiful place. As we sailed passed Ua Pou the towering spires were visible above the clouds
It is sad to have Jane onboard, she was to have been with us all the way but it wasn't meant to be... I miss Alex too but I knew he was leaving at the beginning of July.
However every cloud has a silver lining and the new guys are great. I do feel guilty for stealing Mia from Sky Lark....sorry Lou!
So far 24 hours in and we are drifting at 2 knots in 5 knots of wind.... A few hours ago we were doing 9 knots in 35 knots of wind...the joy of sailing. A steady 15 knots would be so much nicer...
Once again I shan't post till we get there but fair winds
Love Alasdair, Gill, Oscar and Mia
