Re: spot the boatman!

According to predictwind he possibly has 10-15knts and running DDW. I HATE spot because it doesn't show his speed, but clearly he has slowed dramatically.

I hate to say it but maybe his steering has gone yet again?

Re: spot the boatman!

He is making way and holding course. It looks like he needs to move farther south the next couple of days to keep his sails full.

Re: spot the boatman!

He seems to be pointing toward Caelbra. I hope he's only using it as a mark. There's nothing there. Or I hope not another reason...

Or mebbe he's headed to Campo or Rafita?

Re: spot the boatman!

If one of you peterheadz has his cell phone, you might want to give him a shout at some point when you think his hands are free. He seems to be in range, coming close to Cabrera and headed to Rapita.

I recall Phil telling me he was going via Mallorca or Menorca.
The winds made it a difficult journey.

Oh well. We will find out soon enough........

Dont quote me......... I do recall him saying something about the Islands... its been a hectic week.

Ive been in Holland for 2 days looking at lots of boats and sampling the beer. I dont partake of the legal herbal substances over there or the nights........... but I do like the beer.
