Wrong direction features again in the North Atlantic chart show this Friday afternoon accompanied by some pretty scary lighting effects…
Thoughts are with you. Pitched the tent at 1 am the other night in flash lightning and thunderstorm. Be patient things will change for the better, All my best wishes John x
I managed Round the Island Race in 6 1/2 hours and that seemed to be enough for me, so I am over whelmed by your enormous effort and the amount of cheerfulness that you manage to muster, just look forward although circles seem the order of the day, and chin up. My husband lost his rudder going round Britain and sailed for 500 miles on a pair of mole grips !
Frustrating times for you but at least no big storms have hit.
Hopefully your new rudder with come with a supply of food to restock the boat for your meandering journey.
I was so relieved to hear your voice. However it can happen I hope you get a new rudder soon. Hope things will improve and the seas will become more calm with no lightning. that must have been scary. Good luck Your friend Ethel
Adversity (loss of rudder) affects confidence (reaching Falmouth) adversely. Grit, dedication and determination (GDD) affect confidence positively. I know you have the necessary GDD to reach Falmouth. My thoughts are with you. Bill
