Getting 5 knots now after 0 for last 12 hours . made bad decision to stay
up north, unlike last year where i benefited from it . have had engine on for 20
out of 24 hours but we are short of fuel now so are heading down to hopefully
pick up the trade winds . Water is fine and food is plentiful , just the couple
of people who have 14th flights are getting a bit worried . all the rest of us
are quite happy to float down , but the rum punch is calling so well lets just
bash on and try to sail when we have anything above 4 knots and motor below
that. had sunbathing lessons from the girls today but not to good at sitting
around so lasted about 3 hours only . bread been made . pasta for dinner ,
weather watching and just a great time to relax and think of life and how lucky
we are . best wishs to all at home in the office and on the road from us all .
were thinking of the cold weather , traffic jams and work that we a so missing .
Hope you are all writing things back on blog , its for all of us so feel
free to add your comments and we will read them when we get to st lucia
