COMMENT: Beach House -EN ROUTE-Namibia to St. Helena Island – Day 7 – 170 nm
Our best day\’s run so far. We\’re sailing with a reef in the main and the staysail. A bit boisterous out here now.
Steering working fine, but the rudder still slips a little on the starboard side. Refrigerator continues to work on the manual
thermostat. We\’ll gybe sometime within the next 24 hours and perhaps even in an hour the way the wind is shifting to the East.
We expect to see the island well before dark tomorrow and hope to sneak in before sunset? But, it may or may not happen.
