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 -
