St Martin to Azores then N Spain leaving tomorrow.

Friggen hell the last few days have been. Bloody expensive, hot, dusty...


I just can't wait to get to sea!

*has there been a forum update and they have stuffed the Mobile website up? *

Anyway, I am far to tired and grumpy to give a damn.

Anyway (2) the good news is I gave 2 girls coming with me. Crackers! Yes, me and them. I met them doing a 2am rescue when their previous boat dragged onto the rocks. They seemed fine and listened and did.
When I heard they got off that boat the next day I suggested we have a chat.

Neither can sail. That's fine by me.

In 20 days we will either be great friends or hate each others guts.


Woe could be me.

Wish them luck.

Wish me luck.

We Wish them luck.
We Wish you luck.
Just don't leave your monkey on the dock when you leave. lol
Explanation:
When we were in Bali, a sailor set sail across the Indian Ocean with two girls that he'd just picked up off the dock. About a week later we heard that the girls were picked up by a passing ship, stating that the guy had "fallen" overboard and they didn't know how to sail the boat, so they called for help and abandoned the boat.
Nobody knows what really happened, but everybody in the harbor already thought he was a real pinprick because he'd left his real, live monkey tied to a cleat on the dock with no food or water when he left.
So, a word of advice, be kind to your monkey!

Good luck! Hey my last girly crew member said she was a sailing instructor in China, she didn't know sweet FA about anything. So the lack of experience may be best. A trained monkey would have been better.
