Our clocks went back last night and we are now on Eastern Caribbean time. Feeling chilled already.
The wind is forecast to drop tomorrow (Friday) and pick back up again on Saturday but it has been dropping throughout the day, from over 20 knots at daybreak to only 11-12 as we head into the moonlit night. With the drop in the wind has come a drop in the swell which bodes well for peaceful night’s sailing.
All is well (and still no ships).
