Day 12


Such a grey day and bleak night!  From midnight we had non-stop rain squalls followed by periods of no wind where the squall had sucked away the wind then more squalls.  We’re currently sitting with just rain and no wind!  Neither of us managed to get much sleep.  The great 2 knot positive current has disappeared altogether this morning and it looks as if we’re in for another grey day.  Good to be back in the northern hemisphere!


On his inspection round yesterday Matt found some broken wires on both the starboard and port lower diagonal shrouds (and the rigging is less than 2 years old!) – we now have them roped up and will have to get new ones made either in Grenada, Martinique or St Martin – isn’t there always just something!


Oh well only about another 1100 miles to go…………..
