We had expected more wind. Flat sea 100 miles from shore is not usual I suppose, specially for a long time. The sails have been used very little, and mostly together with the engine. The result is a much higher fuel consumption than the estimated. On Monday we had to fuel in Dover. 28 degrees, and a nice breeze. How could we forget to buy ice cream? The good thing is that our speed is higher than expected.
One original plan was to go to Brest in France. I planned to leave Pegasus there, to go home to the karate summer camp. Becaus we have had high speed all the way I chose to go along until Acoruna in Spain.
We had to fuel once more before Biscay. First thought was to go to Guernsey. I have been there once before, about 15 years ago. The map told us it would be shorter to do do that on Alderney. A place with much more fortress than the west coast of Karmøy.
In between all duties I find time to do some self treatment.
The boat is named Pegasus V, a 46 feet Bavaria with 6 beds. We are four men on board, Captain Roger, Leif, Alf Inge and me. AI has on boat experience. Leif has his own boat and id experienced. I have feede the crabs to Shetland some years ago, thuse a bit experience.
Roger is going to move to Spain, and live in the boat. He needed some help to move it. What my contribution is worth in this,we’ll see.
The trip started late Thursday. With map problems. We missed maps for a part of our route. We have pased that area now, no problems. There has also been a small problem with fuel leakage.
I was done with the puking the first day. 4x. Good exercise for the abdomen.
One evenin we had a group of dolphins entertaining us. The next night the raspberry moon held me with company. Big, red and beautiful. This day have been without wind. Flat sea. No ☁, but a bit distanf fog.
L and AI bathed in 17 degrees. I’m waiting for 20 more.
Have heard we have been mentioned in Haugesunds Avis. Have been strange to be without net connection for three days.
