"After 30 years of sailing with Richard, this must be the ultimate! Surfing down mid Atlantic breakers on a 44ft wind surfer, with a kite (Spinnaker) up front, whilst wearing shorts! Meanwhile, my grandaughters are talking about reindeer parades and nativity plays!" AB
Today has been particularly exciting, with a spinnaker that refused to let us pull the sock down... so, up on the foredeck, we faught a freely flying sail, bouncing around in an angry and confused swell. But, smiley faces all around- the wind is strong and has come out to play again. We had a few squals last night, whith a few people getting slightly damp!
We continue to have lunch and dinner on the sun terrace and have seen some fabulous sunsets and dramatic skylines.
Elixir seems to be enjoyiong herslef and keeping us entertained well!!
