Fair winds and pirates away

Not particularly worried about pirates. There have been no pirate attacks in the last six months south of 6 S and we are already at 20 S. More concerned about the tropical storm. Should pass just north of Mauritius on Thursday with winds in the 30 to 35 knot range. The harbor here is protected well for winds from the east which is where they will be if the storm goes north. Will have to watch the progress of the storm in the next few days to see if the course changes. IF so we will have to get out of here. Even a couple of hundred miles to the SW would really help. BTW, the winds in the storm are over 55 knots with waves in the 8 to 10 m range.

Back to Grenada in early December. Not sure I will remember how to sail. Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
