Shakwe Update No 2 Horta to Belfast

Wed 29 Aug 2012 12:01
As at 1200 hours UTC 29 August
Position: N41 49 30   W026 22 35                                    Distance run over 24 hours: 139 NM
Small error in yesterday's blog, distance run of 109 miles was from start time of1430 so only 21 hrs30mins. Actual 24 hours was 123NM.
Jim now much improved and eating again.
Still motoring in oily swell. UK Met office forecast before leaving seems more accurate than current Meteo France grib files but both show a building high ahead.
Saw green flash last night - first since Delphine and I saw one a couple of years ago in Freemans Bay.
Oul Grumpy Jim and Happy Jim
