Amandla Kulu - D18_ Wonderful Sailing

Captain’s Log. Star Date 08 Nov.

Day 18. Nineteenth day on the water.

2248 GMT.
2048 Local.


Every day is a school day.

One of the most privileged parts of my role onboard is the opportunity to learn from each and everyone of our great team, each day.

Everyone has been through significant personal battles mentally, physically and emotionally. Jumping on a boat for three weeks, with a bunch of people you have never met before is a massive undertaking. Throw into the mix you are then knowingly entering a hostile environment with an infinite number of unknowns.

Experience is what you get, just after you most needed it.

We cleared the boat above and below today. An over needed boat clean. It has been a rolling and challenging few days. Much to do, very little spare time.

It is going to be a push to the line. We’ve under 365 nm to the finish line and have sailed some 2,993 nm together since our start-line two or three thousand years ago on the 20th November.

There is a very mixed forecast for the next few days. Some very light airs, before the trade winds fill-in again. We could use a little lucky weather break over the next day or two. Like all these things in life, you make your own luck. It is there to be found, if only you choose to open your eyes to hear it.

Sail fast and stay warm.

Fair breeze, god speed and following seas.
