another great day sailing, seas dropped off a bit, wind around 18 knots, finally eased off a bit and feels like a run home. ( long may it last). Petes made lasagna from scratch tonight so that's a good effort. Definitely having a pleasant run at the moment.

had a great days sailing, wind around 20 knots and about 2m swell. No rain (apart from the odd green one from above) plenty of sun . Fairly uneventful today just enough action to keep us on our toes. Looking forward to a nice sail tonight, should get much of the same weather.

hi all. We are making good ground all onboard well. Young max had a session of feeding the fish this morning but he seems to have come right. We have rough seas that we are pounding into so it's not the most comfortable ride. We past another yacht this morning quite closely and managed to have a chat to them. We have had sunshine today which has made a nice change to the rain we were having. We can control our autopilot remotely from inside so makes the cutting out problem a lot easier to handle. Still 26 degrees up here but slowly getting cooler. Looking forward to getting home safely. Buy for now

Lovely to hear/see you on your new boat, and enjoying it in such a stunning location. Have you done the walk to the top of the mountain? Well worth it.

Hi Irene no apparently only two people have made it to the peak and it took them two days!
