Swell to the left of me. Swell to the right of me. That pretty much
sums up the past 24 hours. There is a gentle 2-3m rolling swell from
the north, fuelled by the low pressure systems. In the opposite
direction from the South East is a small swell, from the SE Trades
perhaps, or is that a little far fetched. On top of that the NE Trades
have started to kick in a little chop from behind. All of which
conspire to knock us off course or collapse the kite. Rupert is now
doing his best to maintain that magic 130 degree wind angle.
Meanwhile I have an irritating nursery song on constant replay in my
head - "We're going this way, that way, over the deep blue sea....."
All I need now is "....a bottle of rum to fill my tum, and that's the
life for me"! Grenada - only 2,180nm to go.
