Emilija - Emilija DAY 5

26 November 2011


All very well here can not still believe we are really doing this. Everyone in good form and getting use to the 3 hour on 6 hours off watch. By the time this is over we will all be expert at sleeping at the drop of a hat. Got bodies and clothes washed... never thought we would be so excitited by a shower. Lots of water and large waves so it is great when we see another boat. This morning we saw a large Catamaran at off the stern they passed us on our port side and they were out of sight in about 3 hours. The wind suited them better than us. At 12noon we put up the twin head sails this helped us a lot and we increased our speed from 4Knts to 6/7 Knts. We are nearly over the dissappointment of the loss of the Parasailor. By tomorrow at noon we should have covered 1/3 of the distance. Temp lovely 25, sunny and warm . Lots of bottles of water drunk by everyone................even Jimmy. Noel nursing rather large bruises from his double trip up the mast... Its a long way up when the boat is rolling. Martin still has not caught a large Tuna for the supper.

Love and good wishes to all
Jenny, Jimmy, Noel, Brenda, Martin, Clare.
