Dear Family and Friends,
17th April 2015
Day 10 and we are over half way, all down hill from here! Only another 1492 miles to go. (Reminds me of Columbus).Weather forecasts look like the winds will lighten so our progress may be slower, we still have 0.7 knot of current with us and although that doesn’t sound that much against the 2.5kts we had approaching the Galapagos Islands, it has given us an extra 228 NM of help. That’s equivalent to just under 2 days less sailing.
All is well other than the fridge problem which seems to cutting out with low voltage, so we are running the generator more as a temporary solution. More parts to find when we return to the Uk. In fact the list of things to deal with is getting longer, I think we should book in extra bags on our return tickets now!
All our best,
Lynne and Alan
