Our spinnaker blew, under repair now
Best regards

Ciao Bella – JM BUSHA 54 Sailing:
WE HAVE JUST CROSSED THE MERIDIAN! We celebrated with some good old top deck chocolate. But we have better news, our desalinator is up and running and making water as well as usual. Please send our thanks to Ronin for the offer of water! But we are going to have to decline now that we have a desalinator desalinating. Please also let them know that we will sort them out with a beer when we arrive in Rio as a thank you gesture!

Love Water:
All good onboard. going fast…
Day 2 report (as submitted – shows just how difficult it is to type when sailing at these speeds!):
Lovewater has had two geeat days runs with a 24hr run of 597nm to 5pm sunday afternoon.
That is over 1000km in 24 hrs.
At the moment we qre engaged in a tactical duel with Mas and at the same time balancing that with the vagries of the wind and wether systems around the South Atlntic High. So far we have seen that we have the ability to match MAS in certain conditions and that with some smart routing and positioning we are competitive in this ocean scale match race.we entered the tropics in the eqrly hours of this morning and the sea has adopted the azzure blue of the deep ocean with lots of flying fish about. the sa temperature is now up to 27 deg and conditions onboqrd qre very pleasant – if you can call driving a roller coaster through a constant car wash pleasant. Everyone is good onboard. We have seen many ships and also this morning a school of dolphins showed up. Onward to rio at pace…..

Mojie:
All is well. More of the same in the trade wind downhill sailing. Great joy for the newbies at crossing the meridian this morning.

Myrtle of Bonnievale:
Last night was not a good night. All my fault. The wind was strong and I heard the two steam trains below again. I sat in the saloon to get away from the noise. My nerves as tight as a high pitched guitar string. At the end of Pietman’s shift, Myrtle threw her bum sideways again. We decided to lower the bigger spinnaker and hoist the smaller one. When all of that was done after half an hour’s hard foredeck work, the wind shifted and we had to do most of the work again to change tack. After that was done, the wind dropped to very low knots. Then the wind shifted again and we changed the sail again. Then the wind dropped completely and we lowered the smaller spinnaker and hoisted the bigger one again, only to see that it has a tear in the higher part of the sail. So the sail came down again to be patched and taped up later today. That was the story of the whole of last night with little miles gained to show for all our effort. We have 8 knots of wind at the moment with 4 knots boat speed.

Everyone is happy. Inge and Lize did some fancy exercises in the cockpit this morning.

Love to all.

Pierre Albertyn

Ronin:
I was busy with watermaker again. We have run into a hole unfortunately and lost speed. Watermaker popped again but managed to repair again. Hope it lasts. Otherwise all good here.

Saravah:
Yesterday Haspa Hamburg appeared on the horizon, and during the last 24 hs we have been playing match racing with each other and having lots of fun. Winds on a beam reach at a nice strength provided amazing sailing conditions, and we have been switching spinnakers at least twice per day.

The night brought challenging conditions but the crew kept the pedal to the metal and we screamed through the dark, reaching speeds higher than 16 knots!

The first reported positions showed Saravah to be the most westerly boat. That puts us well behind the leaderboard, but we are sure our strategy will pay in the medium to long term. Time will tell.

No breakages, but the crew have been busy using tools in order to improve our sleeping quarters. We are trying to fit 9 people into 3 bunks. So far so good, as no one had to sleep together.

Right now, 100% blue skies!

Saravah!
