Noon, 10th April 2008


Our computer has just died!   We were doing fine but now we’ve no electronic charts, no weather fax, no HF email communications – and we can’t play Solitaire!!!   So I immediately got out my laptop and started loading on to it as much as I could from the back up discs that we carry.   Once that was done, I set about giving the computer a good “talking to”.   I dismantled it, cleaned all the terminals, made sure everything was clean and gave it a liberal squirt of WD40.    Then guess what?   It started to work again!!!!   Good stuff is WD 40.


Anyway, only 735 nautical miles to go – and the wind has dropped!   Lots of sun and warm too, but little wind.    There was a great sunset this evening though….


Sunset after a day of little or no wind -
