A day out from the Azores
Well, this has certainly been an interesting passage, it has taken us at least two days longer than we expected, thanks to a few days of calm weather! We kept routing north in search of the southwesterly’s forecast and finally came into decent breeze 4 days ago. LUSH has been blasting along in force 7-8 ever since and over the past 24 hours winds have been in excess of 30knots. With three reefs in the mainsail we’ve sailed along quite comfortably.
Fortunately the sun shone on the day of our midway party and team LUSH glammed-up as per usual. On this occasion the theme was ‘international dress’ and everyone rose to the occasion. Continuing our usual routine of Aft-deck dance-off has been trickier in these conditions and we’ve now resorted to exercising around the cockpit table in our oillies and lifejackets! Where there’s a will there’s a way!
And now for the fish score: Ocean 3 Vs LUSH 3
That’s all the news for now.
Lots of love,
