We are all getting anxious to make landfall. We are calculating and recalculating what we have to do to arrive in daylight. The last 24 hours we have not put up the speed that we needed to ensure a daylight arrival. This morning we put up the asymmetric hoping to see some speed, but so far the winds are just too light. So we will need to aim for arrival at first light on Tuesday. Friends of ours that are there now say there are lots of fish traps and it therefore is not a good idea to arrive in the dark. So very close, but best to wait another day and have champagne for breakfast - at least the refrigerator is currently working so we can put it in to chill!
We have tried all we can try - just a little life lesson in patience, perseverance, doing what you can with what you get, and safety.
