This day, the wind howled as a high rushed in. Eventually dying, all calmed and the poured down whilst a small show of thunder and lightning accompanied it in its passing by.

A day in which a spaghetti sauce and Rum slice were prepared; the twins having been repaired, raised, refurled and lowered in preparation for the next leg; water tanks refilled and Gratis restored to order – it never takes long for the work and camera/computer gear to clutter the small area within.

Come tomorrow lunch time, the weather is looking perfect for what looks like 6 days or more: perfect for a non – stop sail to Cape Town – the satellite phone will be back on line tomorrow.
