Event 2 – Mid point Atlantic
Yesterday evening we passed the half way point!! After 2 weeks chasing the elusive trade winds we now hope that we will find them any day now so that the second half of the passage could be made in about a week.  Of course this has to be celebrated with a party!  As this blog is being written up the skipper is making brownies in the galley whilst the crew prepare a 4ft long mahi mahi we caught for dinner with roasted potatoes and a white wine sauce…. A real treat!!!
Speak next time.
