Calculating landing times, watermakers and food abord
26 January 2018 | 3200 nm from Cape Horn
...We're 3200nm from the from the Horn and another 500nm to the Falklands and then 1100nm on top of that for Punta del Este: so 4800nm to go plus a week in the Falklands which puts us about March 25th in Punta del Este. Maybe just take a ticket for April 1st? Is that bad? If the kids are not coming don't you have more flexibility and like this chances are that I'll be the one waiting which is perfect.
My watermaker attempts didn't pan out yesterday but I'm getting really fast at dismantling the thing. I could do it blindfolded with my arms tied in the back. I guess I'll email the manufacturer today and ask them for ideas. Since it was working and then stopped, and nothing seems broken inside, it cannot be a catastrophic failure and must be something stupid. By the way our next boat either has no watermaker or three identical watermakers in parallel with automatic switching between them in case of failure, and worldwide (and I mean worldwide which includes all the oceans) on site insurance!
Yogurt, granola, apple and maple syrup for breakfast. The apples are still doing great. Pasta (cooked in a minimalist puddle of fresh water),pesto sour cream with can of chicken (we argued about the merits of chicken vs tuna but frankly they taste the same) and can of cherry tomatoes (Janneke's recipe from some dude called Jamie Oliver; know him?).
