Good afternoon dear readers, White watch reporting from a windy part of the Atlantic. The last few days have seen us using engines and rid ing a long swell with hardly any wind, but today ,hooray, we?ve picke d us the promised Southwesterly and have most of the sails set. The e xperience of 360 degrees of nothing has been new for some of the voya ge crew and the spotting of dolphins, whales, sea birds, and would yo u believe, a beach ball, are much talked about events.
Ireland is still looking good for our next stop but we are waiting t o hear if there will be enough water at the berth. Well dear readers, it?s time to log off with all our love and best wishes to you all.
1500 miles to Antwerp. Yes, it has gone up.
