Tal Lira - 5 Nov: Day 4 s/v Tal'Lira 250nm to go!

Hi all! thanks for your congratulations on my birthday! Carole Dane, has her birthday on the same day as me (Pauline) and she is with Stepano and Cat and Dog on the way as well to Abacos, we have to wait to openthe bottle of champagne, because she turned 50 and she thinks it's a special moment of time, so we wait as well with the bubbles.It was a boisterous night (and day) for sure. and now it gets light, we can sail hopefully the whole day! It is strange to think that we will be in blue waters again in a day or two!! We figured out to arrive in themorning at Abacos and plan to take the west entrance, because the Notherly winds and waves make it impossible to enter straight in to Green Turtle Cay.. We will see.We had contact with fellow sailors, and Morning Haze is also doing well! Hope. read more...


Tal Lira - 4 Nov: Day 3 s/v Tal'Lira going South!

Cannot say it was a good night! So much traffic and you have no other choice than to avoid the confrontation, especially the 600ft and up ones going on course 001 and do not change! Spoke to Kinship, with whom we crossed on the course, they were going straight to Anegada! whilst we are going to Abacos. The weather forecast is for sailing, 23-28 knots with gusts to 35! We have had that!! Peter stated, tomorrow is your B'day and I want to be near the rum punch!! haha I don't think so... Well this for now, more later!P&P. read more...


Tal Lira - Day 2

Day one was a fine day, nice weather, no wind, but later at 18.00 it came up, and towards the Gulf Stream it was even better, except for the waves, now we are used to them and it will soon be over, hopefully we can cook our Sunday Morning breakfast as usual!!Have fun!! Peter and Pauline. read more...
