We have a mere 18nm to go to our waypoint, off Shirley Point. It is midnight on the 9th December.


It has been another boisterous day. With big seas,



Some of these beauties towered 6 to 8 feet above the cockpit. But only a couple broke over us.


For the first time in 22 days I have been doing our best to slow down, rather than speed up. A strange sensation…………..I had hoping to arrive off Shirley Point at first light. But it has been blowing 25+ knots for the last 24 hours and big gusts. Last 24 run was 170nm. Best for the whole trip.


Full report once in Jolly Harbour.
