Oarsome Dream - Log 4th Dec couting down the years, when is half way?
Hello Blog readers!
The good ship Oarsome Dream is still powering towards St Lucia! We did 195 miles and 180 miles in the last two 24 hour runs which is a lot better than we doing earlier in the wind holes.
Still counting down the miles on the plotter waypoint and trying to work out the years. We’d been looking forward to 1664 because we all finally knew something for that year (Kronenberg got invented) but we were too busy chatting and totally missed it! Lol. Any one got anything for the years around 1300-1400 where we are now? We’ve definitely run out of knowledge.
We are just about to hit the 1400 to go on the waypoint which I think is half way assuming we log 2800 miles which is a bit more than the 2700nm because we went further than the rhumb line. But on likely days at sea, yesterday was halfway, but what it we slow down and then we’ve had a halfway party at the wrong time???! Anyway, celebrations include the last bar of Diary Milk from the fridge and clean pillow cases - we know how to live.
Better go, those watches wont’t keep themselves.
