Day 6 Drake’s Passage

I have spent almost all the 30 hours since my last post in bed. Hats off to all those who have managed to stand their watches.

I have (so far) resisted sickness but the lassitude and incompetence have been a bit much in 50 knots of wind and 5m seas.  Even the permanent crew admit this is tough.  We are making about 5 knots over the ground so anther 350 nautical miles to go!

  1. Oh no! I hope those nautical miles pass swiftly and the weather eases significantly. I know you expected a level of sickness, hopefully this is near to an end & you can enjoy the first sightings of Antarctica! Take Care x

  2. Hang in there — we are all rooting for you!
    Love from Diana & the Bandits
