The last 36 hours has been pretty rough compared to
the rest of the trip. Trying to dodge squalls which are reaching 30
knots. No big deal for Yellowdrama - apart from having to replace a broken
bolt through the deck that anchors the starboard guy block - all else is still
going well. (I wish I now brought the 3rd box of spare bolts now living in
the trailer!!) Have sorted the generator problems out - seems to be the
sensor as I thought. (Don't let the genny know I said that!!)
Weather is warm though - shorts and tee shirt for
night watch (and life jacket of course!) currently 23 degrees C.
ETA at the moment is looking like Friday the 19th
but sometimes comes up on the GPS as the 16th!
Other news includes:
Pieter found out that women (Lucy) can perform more
than one task at a time. I will tell more....
Lucy spent a bit long in the sun the other day and
ended up with heat stroke. Unfortunately that evening she ended up being
sick and managed to spew and fart at the same time! Pieter said "it wasn't
me!! This is the first time I have seen women double
Matt has just whipped up a mixture of
last nights dinner (chicken and choriszo casserole with couscous)
omlette for breaky!
bye for now.
