Mis Amores - Report four: it's a paradise?

December 16, 2012

Dear friends
First of all good news; the ARC boat in need is doing well and they do not require any assistance. We were relieved and wish them all the best!
You remember I wrote about going through a trough three days ago? Well, as we went through we thought we entered a paradise! Blue skies, friendly sun, flat Atlantic Ocean… It’s just that this part “flat Atlantic Ocean” means no wind. And in a sailor’s paradise definitely must be windy. A little bit. We are struggling today and try not to use engine as our fuel is slowly but surely coming to the lowest level. But even with our code zero our speedo was pointing zero knots! The Grib data says we will have some wind as of tomorrow but who can wait?
Daily activity was crafting. Linda made beautiful paper flowers for each person on board. Andi and Linda painted two very inspiring and vanguard pictures.
Today a three course menu was served for lunch; for dinner then French crepe with chocolate or marmalade. Bon appetit.

Warm regards from 16°06 N; 53°12 W
