Approaching the Greenwich Meridian
Fri 6 Mar 2020 06:16
Nine days into our passage from Africa to South America and we should cross back into the Western Hemisphere today. Another milestone passed.
The passage has been largely uneventful so far, still the wind is too light and not in quite the right direction but... the sun has just peeped over the horizon, everyone else is asleep and we are making 5 knots towards St Helena, so not all bad.
Slow Flight are some 20 hours ahead of us, so they will be able to check the lay of the land for us.
Yesterday we refuelled from the Jerry cans, so our main tank is once again full. I hate to think how much diesel costs on St Helena!
