News from the fleet:

Adriana:
Starting to blow 🙂

Argonaut: 
Fixing bug kite and just had beautifully cooked sirloin. On the braai of course.

Ciao Bella – JM BUSHA 54 Sailing Team:
The wind is finally back and the team could not be happier! Full send from now to Rio

Myrtle of Bonnievale:

We are sailing under spinnaker in 12 knots of wind up the Namibian coast. A sunny beautiful day.

We are 6 crew on board and has divided the day into 8 shifts of 3 hours each. We are 2 crew on shift at a time, 3 hours on shift and 6 hours off. Pierre and Sonja is on one shift, PK and Lize on the next shift and then Pietman and Inge. Being off shift does not mean now you sleep or read a book. (I have never read one page in a book on 7 previous Atlantic crossings.)

When off shift you attend to other stuff, like fixing broken things, adjusting some equipment, cooking, washing, etc, then maybe if there is time, sleep a few hours.

This morning all were on deck working together very hard to take PK up the mast to remove the self furling genoa from its aluminium bolt rope track, which has separated at a join. It took us 2 hours and the sail is now neatly folded and tied up on the foredeck. In 30 minutes we are going to take PK up the mast again to fix the separating aluminium foil with epoxy glue and new grub screws. We hope that will allow us to use the genoa again. At the moment we only use the main sail and spinnaker.

Everybody is happy, we think we will cross to do the Atlantic crossing closer to Walvisbaai.

Regards and Hi to everyone from all on board Myrtle.

Pierre Albertyn

Ronin:
I never thought it possible but I think I am getting fat on this boat. Curry chicken with basmati rice to dinner. Then sundowner and a Cohiba cigar. Hoping the wind will pick up

Umoya:
we discovered today our alternator hasn’t been working and had critic

ally low power on our aux battery. luckily with 2 Germans onboard we managed to strip it and rebuild it. luckily all is well again. we can play tunes and make water again: )
