Thanks Dave for that update , after he had helmed beautifully during dinner – not a drop of custard or casserole got spilt !
We have had some amazing sailing overnight , and are well on our way to anchor tonight off Scarborough. The sun is shining , the sea is blue and smoko was on deck after Happy Hour today – we have gusts of up to 30 knots at times but the motion is steady.
So Jon the Mate is doing a sail setting talk , Lesley and her team are doing maintenance jobs , Dave and John are preparing another feast for lunch ,,,,,,, and all is well onboard. We will update you on the storm situation as it unfolds !!! Batten down the hatches .. and get the Scrabble out !!
