Cohiba - Day 11 update from the good ship Cohiba

Who would believe it beefing to windward mid Atlantic seriously !!

On the plus side we get to see squalls early and practice dark cloud avoidance tactics.

The crew are learning how to do 360 degree turns without even trying. The perfect wind shift was tacked on by John last evening an absolute text book manouvre that anyone would be proud of, bring on a few more of those pleeeeeeze.

Planned a steak and trimmings dinner with gravy last night Squall 10 put pay to that but Chris still produced an amazing bowl dinner. Left overs eaten for breakfast by Sander this morning.

The Obligitory Atlantic swim took place yesterday to include clearing barnacle growth from the prop which will now feather so no longer slowing us down or annoying us with its constant whine.

Fortunately Cohiba was built with a fixed prop so letting it spin freely causes no harm.

Fish have become a little scarce although three flying fish where removed from the deck this morning ( I bet there are a few more under the kayak)

Dominoes in the cockpit took an interesting turn as the heel angle suddenly in creased maybe best saving the future games for a quiet idyllic Anchorage.

Bread making by the resident Viking ( Cecilie ) is proving very popular with us all.

Half way party today Champagne and pancakes created by Sander.

VMG looked a little worrying at one point this morning as we where scheduled to arrive in 2025 . Might be an issue with a few people.

Anyways here’s fingers crossed for the return of the trades my taste buds are dying for the ice cold pitons that we all know await our arrival.

Love to all friends family and fellow drifters out here on the big wide open ocean.
M,C,J,C and S.
