The wind is really consistently blowing hard today and from time to time it
blows very hard. We sail with the spinnaker however at night we feel more secure
sailing only with the genua. We are speeding pretty much quick ahead surfing on
the waves and this afternoon we peaked 14,7 knots on a surf! Hopefully this will
help us catch up our lost 5th place
Today is also a big milestone - at 17h30 we passed 1350 NM – halfway !! We
celebrated of course with some cava. Very convenient as it was just on time for
the sundowner. It doesn't really feel like we've done 8,5 days and it feels like
we have less ahead of us. As we’ve said earlier, time flies. If the wind
continues we are in for St Lucia much earlier than predicted.
We've also had some interesting issues to deal with among the crew and
after "rensing out the air" we're back on track again
Today pretty cloudy weather and some rain. So far feels like we are quite
far from the Caribbean weather.
The kids are doing really great. Finding their roll games. Alex has
somewhat sticked to what Jörgen has told him, that they both are the skippers on
board. Alex then interpreted that Inez and I are the chefs in the kitchen. This
means that I don't have the right to decide over him.... They are both really
happy spending their days like "nakenfisar" = naked. Lovely, less laundry.
Take care everyone!
