Waking up in paradise again, although the winds continue to be light, the seas are calm and the sunrise is stunning. Myril cooked lunch today, we were treated to Beef Adobo, a classic Philipino dish using meat, boiled eggs, pineapple, veg and rice. More sunbathing, a dolphin show mid afternoon – there must have been 40+ dancing around the boat in all directions – and a round of GnT’s on the foredeck for sunset. With the amount of food we have left on Songbird, we are all considering a detour to prolong this trip!!
Talk of arriving in St Lucia is building, we have been on the boat for 14 days now, when we left Las Palmas the deal was that this time together on the boat served as our quarantine period. We now find out from ARC HQ that we are required to have another PCR test (something we all dread) in St Lucia on arrival and then quarantine at anchor until the results are in. This is disappointing news to us all.
The Astro navigation team beat all previous records and got to 11.6nm accuracy!
