You will need my sat phone number which you can get by emailing me. Although the screen will say 160 chars - I only get the first 108 (...its the usual IT screw up)






Stir crazy…

Going quietly mad…waiting for Thursday morning 0400 UTC.

There looks like there is a break in the weather in Biscay – I need 3 days clear especially as I approach Cape Finisterre on the corner of Spain..

Its actually grey, raining and windy here – I hope it is at home too ..!

Fixed a navigation light, wired up a strobe light, got new – British – neighbours – much more polite.

Getting very tired of waiting, waiting, waiting….

…waiting…the devil finds work for idle hands…

    Hi Russ,

    So is this the final push?

    Are you off across the Atlantic (via where ever)?

    Tube strike in London Russ, so chin chin, waiting for an overcrowded bus is worse than waiting for a fair wind…..

    Weather not bad here. Bit grey but not windy or wet.
    Haven’t you got a stack of books to read? You could always try bonding with the locals in the spirit of the EU.
