Soon time for the big off. Boat cleaned and tidied. Last minute shopping done, Porac bought 4 loaves of bread and 3 crates of beer. Think he over did it with the bread. Its tuesday night and the last plans are being made. Up early to get the boat filled with 800 litres of diesel before we set off. New Caledonia is 960 miles away, at an average of 5 knots thats 8 days of sailing. Weather looks good but can obviously change over a few days. Won’t be able to report in for a few days – wish me luck !! I would leave my CD collection to someone but i sold them all to music magpie !!
