23 Dec Storm Clouds
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will bring the first official gale of the voyage. These clouds to the north west of me now are giving me fair warning of what is coming. Although puny by storm standards down here, any gale at sea should not be taken lightly.
I doubt Santa will will be sliding down the exhaust hose for the heater but squirrelled away in a secret place known only to me are the presents my wife Nani and sister Leah made up for me before I left Victoria.
I had hoped,to stop the boat for a few hours to celebrate but the weather gods have laid to rest any such plans. What they have planned instead I can only guess. I am, however, fairly certain that won’t object to my singing of a few carols.
