Off at sparrow fart . . .

Postby Nick » Wed Jun 20, 2007 7:59 pm

for Horta unless something causes a change of plan along the way. It's 149nm, with winds forecast mostly light, initially on ra neb then SW and ending SSW as they get up to F4 on Friday afternoon. Course is 287 for the first 140 miles, then we should be able to free off for a run in the last ten miles.

So - another night sail tomorrow, but at least it's the shortest night.

Will email a position report to Tim & Silkie tomorrow afternoon and hopefully someone will put it up.

I cannot image that the fart of a sparrow will be too noisy - is there a smell?
