TNS463 19/07/2016  We did 8-12 watch last night and there was a chill in the air.  The watch was brightened by games and nonsense, and the moonbow. This morning we woke up to barely any wind whatsoever and a calm sea which was reflected in our speed of 2 knots. We put the Royal and […]

A glorious sunny Sunday on board, with time to ourselves as there was no happy hour or drills. We remain sailing towards Lisbon (hopefully) as we are still without electronics and doing it the old fashioned way. The galley has now joined in with the retro feel and served butterscotch Angel Delight for puds (found […]

LN899 16/07/2016 – As reported yesterday the light winds meant we were unable to make the first way point. The good news was we were not disqualified, but attracted a time penalty.

TNS463 15/07/16 – We have just left Noumea in New Caledonia. We motored into Noumea on a Monday too find a closed town.

LN899 14/07/2016 – Racing to clear way point one before we lose the wind it’s all hands to tack the ship, once, twice and morning found us making good progress in calm seas. The crew enjoyed the sail handling despite the reduced sleep and we were treated to a sail handling talk by the mate- […]

LN899 11/07/2016 – We woke up in tall sea, this was a big test for new stomachs (including mine) which some of us passed… Powering south along the coastline, we could briefly see behind us the Danish square-rigger we were docked alongside in Antwerp, battling the relentless waves like ourselves down towards Dunkirk. With the […]
