Ostrea - Tradewind course
Dayreport of the Ostrea,boat arc 135,from wednesday 12-12
We have sailing conditions from the arc folder,25 -30 knts tradewind,untill 11.2 knts boatspeed while surfing from 4 m high waves and a crew,who thinks this is the normal way of living. Although St Lucia is more than 200 miles
away we look with the binoculars for mountains,we try to smell our first rhumpunch and we try to hear the local drums. Our ETA is calculated on a minute excact time,namely tomorrow 18.01 local time(utc-4)and at that time
in our local pub Stobbe Rotterdam, the champaincorks will hit the sky. Boat and crew are in a perfect condition except opa who has a contused lower rib and a wife who wants to play golf with him next week.
Baby Pien learned walking during the crossing and we are very interested how she will manage to walk on a stable pontoon.
Saint Lucia here we come!!!!
