    South till the butter melts!

    Fair winds, calm seas and may your batteries always have at least 12.4 v to keep the beers cool in the fridge.

    Looking forward to the pics.

    We are tucked in for the night just west of Delos near Mykonos.

    Untied from dock. Heading South Down West Coast of Canada.

    Cold wet but not miserable

    Well we left with ice on the decks, and when the fog burned off bright sky's. Then the weather changed again. We are dogging gales and storm force winds and doing bugg all sailing as the winter gales all come from the South.

    So yesterday we banged into it for 8 hours stuck our nose out into the pacific for a short while and for about 6 hours made a bout 3-4 knots. So today we lucked out and have free moorage at a posh marine resort called Shearwater. Best deal I have ever got her :-) Wi-fi is $10 a day and slow is not the word. I am sat outside the Hotel have been for 30 mins and I am now able to post. I hope.

    We have proved we can leave, now we are waitinging for the next 40knot gale to blow over. Maybe a day or 2. Luksana is Happy, (until she tries the wifi.) Showers laundry all very clean, few shops and a bar and restaurant. Sleemans honey brown on tap for $6. Not bad since this place is a boat or float plane destination.

    Not been able to read any of the above posts, and yes we have pics, but they will have to wait for a connection that is faster than a 286!!!!!! Thanks for the good wishes, only 3800nmiles to French Polynesia.....

    Ever heard of a Bear extender?

    No not rude but seems to work great, plugs into a USB port and boosts the wifi system so here goes. Not completely sure of all the pics yet but these where sent by friends so here goes.
