Hi All


I hope all is well with everyone


All good here


Just for reference we are counting  May 1st as Day 1 of the trip- we went from Antigua to Barbuda and anchored for the night

2nd May Day 2  we got the boat ready and left Barbuda at 1200

So the day of the month is the day of the trip


Days 2 and 3 were a bit of a baptism into ocean sailing as we had wind speeds from 20 to 50+ and we were close hauled into a 2-3m swell


Day 4 – We have reduced sail quite a lot and the effects of this baptism are quietly wearing off but there is a lot of sleeping being done and not a full take up of the extensive menu


Port jib sheet parted in the squall but apart from that – all good


Best regards
