Miles (Distances calculated on a straight line by GPS)
Covered to date: 1360
Remaining to Antigua: 749
Weather: Sunny and warm—30°
Wind: 10-16 knots, E/NE
Seas: 1-2 M Swells—a pleasant relief. The water is now a beautiful shade of crystal blue.
Sailing: Less wind and coming from behind so we’re going slower
Crew Well-being and Morale: Better. Yesterday we had a series of minor incidents—desalinator stopped working, problem with the oven, kindle breaking down, etc. which made some of us a bit... errr...'cranky' shall we say. Thankfully everything has now been repaired.
Lunch: Sandwiches on homemade bread and apple cake
Of Special Interest:
• Patrice and Alan have been abducted by mermaids…..just seeing if you’re paying attention ☺
• Seriously, nothing to report other than it’s been a lovely relaxing day despite our slower progress.
‘Delight of the Day:’ We agree that we have all been equally delightful today.
