Life & Travels Afloat in our Moody
Just to deter any complacency, we encountered 2 days of stormy weather. Winds up to gale force, constant rain and heavy seas helped to us see the other side of the ocean, mainly from peering through the hatch.
This was followed by headwinds, (hence the sudden change of direction for those looking at the location tracker), and another of very light wind. However we have crossed the line of the tropics, and it is hot!
The bimini (cockpit shade) has gone up, and we are waiting for more north-easterly winds to use the big cruising chute. So probably another slow day before we get the tradewind proper.
Life on board is not too tough at present, other than the banana-biased diet. These have ripened faster than expected, and there are many to eat. Oh well, only another 1824 nm, as the seagull flies, to St Lucia…
