GENERAL SYNOPSIS: ON BOARD THE TRES HOMBRES
Last night the wind backed from the West to the South and picked up to near gale force over night. We 76 mils away West South West of Finisterre now nearing the end of this small little storm. We had a little celebration yesterday afternoon at the latitude of Finisterre with a glass of Tres Hombres rum for the watch on deck. Together with the salty Tres Hombres chocolate from the Chocolatemakers we enjoyed this milestone on our way to warmer weather and smooth seas. This morning we Rianne our cook made porridge that fitted the waves and stayed well in our plates. The forecast for the wind will be Northerlies in the afternoon! This will make us going sailing South again.
