Whit's first full day's sail

09 May 2011
8 MAy 2011

And he's still alive! In fact, he's had a very gentle, lovely introduction to long-distance sailing. Yesterday, we had light winds and so were motor sailing with just our genoa out. Then this morning, there was just enough wind for our spinnekar, so we have had all sorts of different combinations of sails today, with spinny just been taken down now it's sunset. Wind has picked up slightly to a lovely 20 knots and so we are thoroughly enjoying good sailing conditions. Our watch sytem is 4 hours on 8 hours off. I have the easy watches 6-10am/pm Mark has 10-2 and Whit 2-6am/pm. We sold the hardest watch well to Whit, saying that he gets to see both the sunset and the sunrise and went on about how wonderful it was to be by yourself at night with only the stars for company!
When the boys were sleeping this morning, Mia, Lochy and I had a water fight on the trampoline which was a lot of fun, cooled us down and I even managed to get some of that soapy stuff they call shampoo on the kids' hair. Lochy said "it's really nice to be back at sea, isn't it mum?" and Mia has been pleased that she hasn't felt sick at all because the swell is behind us. Happy days. Current position: 12.21.26N 64.24.79W

Having met whilst sailing on Bob's boat, there always was a vague plan that we would at some stage sell the house, buy a boat and sail round the world. Unfortunately, we didn't have a house. That was 9 years ago. [...]
