Nearly There!
Not too far now, all being well we should be in Salvador this time tomorrow: 0800 local time (1100 GMT).
 
Hot, Hot, Hot!
It seems so hot here, the water temp. is 29.60C, air temp in shade 31+. So sticky and sweaty at night, especially with the engine running. Goodness knows what it will be like ashore.
 
Theo Litson - End of Passage Report
Personal and Social
Theo is a mine of interesting information, remembering facts once read and relevant to our conversations. Happy and easy going, he is seems content to read or join in with whatever we throw at him. Would he be bored with us old fogies? - was slight concern for me, but he can be extremely polite, although he appears to prefer the odd sarcastic witticism at Dad’s expense.  Genuinely though, he appears to have enjoyed our company.
 
Cooking
Theo enjoys being creative with our meagre rations and great smells and food come from our galley.
 
Sailing
A steep learning curve for Theo who was very inexperienced at sailing. However, he has taken to it, ‘like a duck to water,’ and is already talking about a Day Skipper course. Now a tried and tested Watch Leader.
 
Skippers Comments
Utterly biased as I am, I have loved having Theo on board, enjoyed his company on this passage and I am thrilled that at last one of my boys has joined me.
 
Miles travelled in the last 24 hours: 114 miles
