Well we really are in the middle of the south Atlantic! Right on the mid Atlantic ridge – a big chunk of volcanic rock and sand with (surprisingly) white sand beaches, bristling with radio masts and communication equipment.  On approach the profile was such that we reckoned we had discovered the location of the secret “Thunderbirds” island! The last day of our passage was fairly calm with the winds dying down as the evening wore on but we managed to keep a speed of around 5+ knots for the last 12 hours.  Going to have our full English before we go ashore to check in with the authorities.
