Saturday 7th December 2019 the red watch began the day with a seven (7) to one (1) shift. I (Krishna) kinda helped with lunch preparation with cutting some cheese and carrots, in my spare time today I visualized and drew down some cricket fielding positions according to how I bowl when in the game of play which was quite relaxing (getting my mind off the pain in my leg).  During today’s briefing skippey (gary) told us that we’re four(4) to five(5) days away from home/ St. Lucia ( 800 nautical miles).Later this day if only luck was really on our side we could have caught the biggest catch of the trip but like I said we was unlucky.

After a long night of many squalls and some very close crash gybes, we settled into are morning watch. Red watch carried out an early morning gybe to get us back on course after the wind shifting on our last tack. Today has been slow and steady for the progress leaving us just with 610NM to go. Kiki prepared us a lovely lunch of tomato pasta with salami which seemed to go down like a treat followed by Anna’s watch cooking supper. Today was one of our favourites, Shower day, never fails to lift the moral! With only a few days to go, preparation has started for our arrival, deep cleaning and all the rest! Our next few days should see the wind starting to fill back in which only leads to our ETA getting sooner and sooner. Not long now!!
