Maximilian - Prep, Start and Apples
Our first blog from Moody Max! After all the prep and a simply massive Xmas and New Year with family and friends we said goodbye to beautiful St Lucia at noon yesterday. The time we had for final preparations was fine and all was good until the SSB packed up on its first real test and Apple (bless them) decide to update iOS making it incompatible with the iridium mail app. Luckily Tez had a back up back up back up back up android samsung that works. Blogs therefore will be short as typing on this phone isn't the easiest.
Anyway, thanks to all the WCC team for a great build up and send off.
We are beasting along with our Simbo rig pulling us pretty much dead down wind at 270T. We managed a new record at 14.5kn on a wave earlier so officially this is a sleigh ride.
Autopilot came up with a weird 'drivestop' error earlier - reset and its ok ...for the moment! Luckily we have Harriet hydrovane.....
