Tuesday 10th November
 
Madagascar
We are still closing on Madagascar, the weather looks settled with light winds. In the words of the Reunion Marina Manager Jerome “Soft winds”. We hope to turn tomorrow directly for Durban, then all attention will be on the SW winds and lows coming up the coast. Light winds yesterday early evening – engine on.
 
Bryony Braves the Galley
Sea legs found, Bryony is preparing lunch today – this is still our main meal time. We have settled in to an easy routine with our watches and are slowly getting used to sleeping at odd times. Depending on WD’s motion this isn’t always easy.
