In the wee hours of Day 94, July 3rd, Dippers and I surfed past the ‘1,000 nauties to go’ sign. We’re currently 981 nauties away from the Rum Punch, being helped (and splashed alot) by SE winds and some very chunky, boisterous seas. Psychologically this is an important, double-edged stage – yes, under 1,000 means ‘miles to go’ is only three digits long now, but there is still scope for bad weather, wiggles etc etc. So while I am very excited that we are now in the ‘hundreds’ not ‘thousands’ lane, there is still lots of rowing to be done and, no doubt, many more challenges between here and my first steps on dry land. I can’t get complacent, I must keep an eye on my food supplies, I must keep rowing, I must keep the engine primed and ticking as best I can, I must not give in to complete insanity, must keep singing and dancing and so on. And so on some more. All 981 nauties.All the way in.
For it ain’t over till it’s over….
Yours in the hundreds,
