Uno - Day 19: Sleigh rides & risotto

Thursday 7th December

It’s been a great day with good swell & wind behind us, & swell only going in one direction so it’s been like a sleigh ride surfing down the waves. Much more comfortable than the past few days too & just before midnight we will crack the “500nm to go” mark — we are coming Saint Lucia!

Weather has been very settled, we’ve only seen a couple of squalls & a few very brief rain showers on our journey across so far.

The kids came up with a fun game hiding a soft toy somewhere on the boat & then taking a photo where you could just see it. We (the adults) then had to go through the photos to spot the hidden moose or seal ;D It was very cool. We always say boredom breeds creativity!

Lynnie made a yummy risotto for dinner using up half of our last zucchini, and some butternut which has kept really well, and the last of our chicken. We have a bunch of green apples & oranges left, a few wrinkled aubergines & capsicum, plenty of potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut, & eggs, plus 2 pre-cooked meals left - spaghetti bolognese & a Thai green curry. We will not starve!

We had a 158nm mileage day which was pretty good & heading into a fast night.

Uno out.
