Monday, December 1, 2008


ok, later is now: the 30th of December just before the new year.

25th of November:

One of us had a tension drop so he wasn't able to take his watch. We got since 2 days a bloody creapy weather. like a lot of wind (between 40 and 50 knuts) with a big and tough sea, just passing Gibraltar. I'm not fealing good but we have to keep going, one is already down... The last night was especially rock n' roll!! Everything is wet and we didn't eat a descent meal since the rock.
During my second watch, between 2 showers i got the pleasure to have a quick look at the stars. And Denis was really nice to let me his cabine for few hours the time to get some good sleep because i couldn't get some in the cnetral place where i used to sleep.

26th of November:

Just after the storm we got a deadly calm weather which was even worse cause we had to turn on the engine which stink... 
Everybody got a bit tense and at four on such a small boat (37 feet) anything get anoying!
One boat passed this morning, was faster than us so we lost her on 3 hours, quick company!!
Tonight the sky and the milky way is gordeous. i have never seen it like that! it's deadly!! It becomes easier to stay alone for the watch when you havec something to contemplate!!

27th of November:

We got the engine and the pilot dead: bad time, nobody talk...
And then the wind stops completely. The rain start pouring, like hell, a very cold. The hands get icy, a ricard please!! And all of that in one night watch:2 hours, what a craizy world!!
It's 10.30 am and cross the line of Essaouira - Marocco, souvenirs are coming back to me, nostalgy and sadness for tonight. We still have almost 300 miles to sail til Las Palmas de gran canaria. And still no wind, bloody hell!!
