Westward Slow!

01 February 2018 | 160 Miles SSW Cape Horn
4:00pm Thursday 1st February 2018 ( UTC-4 ) After an evening and night of light airs the breeze in the morning was favourable for a full jib which has gradually been reduced leaving now only the storm jib. As it was fairly calm last evening I pumped the desalinator for four hours the product going into the almost empty Port SS tank. It was therefore with some annoyance when I went to make my morning coffee to find the galley fresh water pump had packed it in - I have an alternate pump but it has different fittings so will have to bodgy it up. Then I found I only had four litres under the sink in a plastic bottle so I spent 2 1/2 hours this afternoon to make 10 litres, so I now have 12 litres to hand. I can recover the water with a dish and funnel from the SS tank and I have three 20 litre plastic drums which are reasonably accessible so it is not an immediate problem. Looking ahead at the weather forecasts shows no early reprieve from a hard slog to the West and though there is a possibility of a South West wind it is too far off to be sure of. It is starting to howl now but I should be able to carry the storm jib through the night. Beside that everything is hunky dory.
