Evening - day 16
06 December 2012
Had been becalmed for a day, but little breeze picked up an hour ago and now making 4 knots with full main and genoa. We've lost maybe half a day motoring very, very slowly in the calm, conserving fuel. But fresher winds are forecast for the weekend and next week, so still hoping to make it up. Now thinking some time Wednesday.
Hard work stopping cabin fever breaking out amongst the crew. The wind has come back just in time!
About 800 miles left to go, so starting to feel like we're on the final leg. 2000 miles since the Canaries, 3750 since Portsmouth - 800 miles is a walk to the shops!
PS Al: invitations for vin chaud went out weeks ago. Rendezvous at 14 46.1N;51 06.9W. Everyone else has confirmed already. Turns out mahi mahi tastes like turkey.
