Today has been another day of excellent sailing, Elixir and her crew are back on form with the Spinaker up at first light and down just after sunset we are making good progress towards the finish and with less than 500 miles to go, we are all excited about landfall but aware that our adventure will be partly over and that sailing like this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Having said that, the crew have worked very well together and enjoyed the trip so it hasn't put us off sailing or each other, who knows what the next proposal will be??!!
After some threat of thunder storm activity yesterday we took the precaution of storing our back up electrics in a lightening proof place, which is apparently the oven. Having done this our Skipper went on to prepare an excellent Macaroni Cheese supper only to find afterwards that the GPS was nicely warmed up and while it was safe from lightening, suffered a bit of a roasting.
We continue to look after Elixir well and her us.
