Escapado - 4th December
A day of light winds, giving us all time to re energise and refresh despite still being in a race. A rotation of bucket showers on the bow followed by a washing system with salt water has given us all time to catch up on personal grooming . However as the day progressed the crews frustration increased as winds continued to decrease. With predicted winds coming, we’re all still hopeful to continue chipping off the miles. I wish I could slide in numerous hilarious stories but the laughs today have only been the classic walking into the boom, a game of uno or Jakes constant chatter/sing songs which perks us all up. Kat cooked an amazing meal of veggie and meat food fuelling us through yet another graveyard shift made better by the the trips clearest night sky, with the moon behind the clouds we could depict thousands of twinkling stars between the squalls. Mid squall Sophie's instructions are ‘head for the stars’.
