Just a quick note to say that all is well
We are currently having a nice
sail at about 7.5 knots on a course of 185 degrees. With the wind directly
aft, we have had to jibe today.
|November 25, 2003
|| At 21:40 GMT, we are at position
|Wind 16 knots from NE
|| Swell of 5-8 feet
Had some excitement earlier today which resulted in a 3 meter tear in the
asymmetrical spinnaker, but we were able to patch the sail and expect it to
work fine tomorrow.
The swell has come down a little since the start, and sea-sickness is
thankfully getting better for all. I believe that my mom and I are the only
ones that are still suffering somewhat - I guess it is in the genes ;-)
We were late reporting our position to the ARC today, so please don't be
alarmed if our position has not yet registered on the website. (The
communications officer (yours truly) was feeling ill, and momentarily forgot
to send in our 12 zulu data)
All the best,
Nancy & the rest of the Apsara crew.
