The fast and the furious – this ARC will propably go down in history as one of the shortest...
We had hoped for a quick journey, but this really looks good! We very rarely had winds below 20 knots, averaging rather 25. Which means the poor parasailor has not seen daylight yet. But we are speeding along anyway and looking forward to arrive on Thursday. Our weather router Meeno Schrader has led us brilliantly around the worst of squalls and calms and we have enjoyed every mile so far. Enough wind and waves – thanks to Aeolus. The first wave ever that climbed into our cockpit yesterday, left me totally soaked and my crewmates crying with laughter.
We have very delicious, and more than enough food! So we did not even start fishing, because beef and lamb had to be eaten first. Just now a nicely smelling carot - coconut salad is on the table and for sure we are all not in the danger of loosing weight.
And even though we all started two days later – it seems we are not missing any of the partys in Rodney Bay! Although we cannot find the St. Lucia party schedule anymore in the organised chaos of our salon – we are looking forward to party with you soon!
