lovely day for a swim!
27 January 2011
Day 12. No wind. Nada. Not a sausage. Engine on, chugging along a little bit south to avoid the high, but this may be what it is going to be like for a couple of days. Everything is charging - laptops, IPods, headtorches, camera batteries whilst the engines are on. So, no wind, flat seas, what's a crew to do? Turn off the engine and jump in the Atlantic, of course. Oh, and take in the fishing lure that Alan still has dragging (pasta for dinner yesterday, not fish!) The kids had a ball, Chloe scored a 9.5 with her dive and Alan narrowly avoided showing us his white botty as his shorts fell off after an athletic dive too. Mine wasn't so much of a dive as a girly jump! OK, so I was in the water for approximately 2 minutes, but that is 2 minutes longer than the last time I crossed the Atlantic! And we got some good photos to prove it! So, we're probably adding days onto our trip, but we're having fun! Pos'n 17.25.18N 36.21.20W - half way!!
