At Sea: Nothing to report

April 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

Position at 11:25 BST 14.088,-67.723
ETA at 5 knts 05:18 8th Apr.  715 miles to go
Wind ESE 3/4.  GPS distance run since yesterday 158 miles.

I’m glad to say there is nothing to report.  A pretty sunset and a pretty sunrise.  Subtle changes in the wind and sea.  Excellent grapefruit for breakfast.

I think I will get out my book today.  I have been reading Kidnapped and Catriona by Robert Louis Stevenson.  We should be able to visit his house on Samoa where he wrote Catriona.  David Lunt gave me Pamela Stevenson’s (wife of Billy Connelly) book of following in the footsteps of RLS.  She did it in style on a 100ft boat – much the size that RLS used in the late 1800s.  Her book is called Treasure Islands.
