06 November 2013 | 28 21'N:77 34'W, South direction Abacos Walkers Cay 210degrees
It was a rough passage, and the autopilot broke for the 5th time this year!! We have fun hand stearing and that s all we need! Its one hour up one hour down.. today its seems to be less rough, so a bit of sailing will do us good! Peter has hurted his knees, and is under doclofenac, but he does not complain! We have another member as company, Topaz and we will have a watch our for them... we will have no cake but some champagne left!! P&P

More than 1/2 way and it gets warmer, but also wet!

05 November 2013 | 30 46'N:75 33'W, South direction Abacos 195degrees
Good Morning!

Everyone, thanks for your B'day wishes, I feel really celebrated! just had breakfast, ommelet met ham en koffie!! My flowers are still good, so wish to put them on the table in Abacos again! Peter is doing well, having fun with the waves, he's Surfing! It is rough, not like last year in the acceleration zones, but its high waves, strong winds and its beating against ... whatever. some 250nm to go! We have to go east to get better waves, but at the end it will not make a big difference. So we continue! we are getting worn out, not much sleep and you feel you get older!haha... Have a nice day! P&P

Half Way!

04 November 2013 | 32 07'N:73 41'W, South direction Abacos 195degrees
It was a beautiful sailing day, first main and jib, not too much out, from 8.30h till 2pm, over to lesser winds and we put the genua, it was fast, we did sometimes 10.5 knots! At 5pm rain and we are preparing for some rest, with the two of us, no autopilot, its too rough, we want to have a nice diner again! More tomorrow@ P&P

Day 3 - Gulf Stream

04 November 2013 | 33 5618'N:74 633'W, South direction Abacos
Still working our way South, its a rough passages, winds 23-28 N.Ne with gusts of 3035K and huge waves in all sorts of directions... we speed we think, but we have no clue, will make my calculations if it gets less hectic. At the moment motoring, but soon we will be sailing again! Its till so far good to be out, the two of us and the elements, but its not as easy as all say, yeh yeh, cross the stream("Andy I'am copying you" and then your turn left and than you blow in 2days to Abacos!!! We are no nearly 40hrs on our way, so 2days? and still we have 450nm to go, if we go 10knts an hour than it will still be 4 days? but we are doing 8-9 knots and that's a hell of a job to keep up with the waves and no autopilot, not that its broken, but it does not like this situation... Keep you informed asap!! We miss you all and say ...cu xxP&P
