Well the weather window that we were depending on has closed in on us, overnight. There are three ‘Lows’ going across the NE coast of the USA, we had hoped to leave here today to slip between the first and second ‘Low’ on Wednesday night. But the leading one has slowed and the second one has speeded up so we would probably end up about 100 miles off the East Coast in a Force 8 Gale. Something I am keen to avoid.

The problem is that the third front is following very close on the heels of the second one so it means we are tragically going to be..............

Stuck in Bermuda for another couple of days at least!!!!!

Tough duty but somebody has to do it. We are using the time to give the boat a really good going over and repairing all those non urgent bits that have been waiting to be done.

I might do a little touristy stuff later.

In my last email at the end I said “Any of you following sorry it doesn't seem to be working at the moment. I’ll have to look into it.” No it doesn't make sense but I am sure your not surprised, it was a typo of course. Should have read “Any of you following me on Tracker, sorry it doesn't seem to be working at the moment. I’ll have to look into it.”

Well we will tough it out here and head north as soon as the weather window opens again.

Then double click on the boat icon and it will take you to another map which shows you where we are. Usual zoom tools etc,. If you hold the cursor over the icon you will see boat speed and direction. If you want to see where we have been over the last few days go to the 'Tracker' tab and adjust the date range to how ever far back you want then refresh.
