Timshel - Cocos to Mauritius Day12
Good news first thing this morning that the injured lady was transferred to the Mauritius coast guard vessel Barracuda with medical back up on board and speeding off to Mauritius. So she will have immediately been given the treatment she needs, and we are all hoping for a quick recovery. They had declared the seas too rough the previous evening. It has all moderated today, less wind, less waves, but there are still a few spiteful ones about so we still have all hatches and windows fastened, one board in the companionway and the companionway hatch closed. A few boats did have torrents of the water below over the chart table damaging their instruments. We are probably fortunate that our chart table is on the port side, with the boat on port tack any water getting in sprayed the galley and cooker on the opposite side. And at least the water in the cockpit had washed away the blood and guts of flying fish that landed the (on Steve) the night before. We now have 657 miles to the finish at Port Louis Mauritius.
