Noon, 15th April 2008


Well the wind has picked up and we have 25 knots gusting to 32 on occasion, the sea is rough and there are some very big waves that we are surfing down.   I don’t feel however that we need to deploy the drogue, but we have the sails well reefed and we’re steering by hand on occasion.   Its great! Only 111 nautical miles to go so we should arrive at Five Fathom Hole, just off St Georges in Bermuda at about 2 a.m.    I think we’ll anchor and wait for dawn before tackling the reefs and Town Cut (the harbour entrance).



Big waves follow us…..


It difficult to get perspective on the size of some of these waves with the camera – but they are

Quite large!


Even when the boat is taking a bone jarring bashing – it does not stop Anette from cooking dinner!
