Burwood Bank Blues

I was up and down last night thinking that I might be able to get us going somehow somewhere. It was an exercise in futility that only resulted in a loss of much needed and precious sleep. We are becalmed (again) with no real prospects for at least 8 hours.

What’s a few hours here or there you ask? The answer to that lies in a series of gales that we due east of the Falklands that we cannot avoid. The quicker we get going, the better our chances of avoiding the strongest winds and biggest waves.

For now, I’ve got the. Burwood Bank Blues. Musical references aside, opportunity knocks. We may not see such mild conditions for some time so it’s on to those jobs that can only be done when it’s calm.

So much for lazing about and working on my tan…

    That looks about right. When it’s hot out in the ocean, its foggy and wet on the Wet Coast. That means you’re on the right track, heading the right direction. Finally. Woohoo.
