21 days – no quick trip this time…

Today is the 21st day out of Las Palmas. I was planning for a 21 day (3 week) passage. I have also managed to get supplies to last this long, e.g. fruit is now running out, I ate the last corn flakes for breakfast this morning, I have 2 slices of bread left, etc.
However, the slow start and the 3 days lost in the westerly winds means that I still have some 1100 miles to go. At the current rate, that means 10 more days…. Anyway I am trying to enjoy the perfect weather and the nice sailing that we have now. I hope mother nature does not have more surprises waiting for me.

I was planning to go to Barbados, but am now looking at Antigua instead. I can from there go south to Martinique, where I will meet the crew that will sail the boat home.

  2. Hej Uncle!

    Hope that you’re doing allright all by yourself.
    Being without wind sounds terrible.
    Just to let you know, we’re all with you on this trip and have been since the start.

    Take it easy and watch out for those big oil-tankers.

  3. Sail On, sailor ! All the best.
