cannot but hear the odd radio chat at the moment. It seems that a few boats
have had to turn back to Las Palmas and those that continued on a north
westerly direction have been rather knocked about in large winds and big seas.
One racing boat even had problems with his mast and has had to redirect to Cape
Bob’s secret tinkering
have a secret weapon on ‘Interlude’ our ‘tinkerer’ Bob. Bob has for hours
secreted himself in the engine room on a secret project that I’m not allowed to
disclose here. But from the ooohs! aahs! and clanking going on I think we were
successful. Suffice to say at this point that he was amazingly successful and
we made an immediate and dramatic change in direction as a result ..everyone
wearing an evil smile.
Where did they all go?
did all those boats go? From a very cosy start with boats all around us now
there is no one. Nothing, Zippo, empty ..even lonely.
Is it something we said?
All looks good on the weather and our
had the latest weather pretty pictures in over the satellite (GRIB files for
nautical types) and all looks good for the foreseeable few days. No changes
needed for us.
