Tom and I joined the boat in Piriapolis a few days before setting off to the Falklands. In these first few days we learnt how to service the winches, probably painstakingly slowly in Chris' eyes! Having never lived on a yacht before it was a new experience, but one which we both enjoyed. Chris, Dave and Magnus have all made us both feel at home on the boat and have been eager to teach us anything to do with sailing,

Piriapolis greeted us yesterday afternoon with some very very wet rain! The marina was quite full when we arrived so we ended up alongside the Prefectura office against a wall in a shallow berth, thanks for a lifting keel and rudder. After signing in we went for a steak and beer - traditional arrival meal in a Southern South American port! Seb ordered something called a Finio which was a huge plate of chips, steak, russian salad, green salad, topped with a fried egg.

Better progress. We are still sailing in quite light winds mainly from ahead but with smoother seas it is possible to sail closer to the wind and we have covered some good miles over the last few days.
