Trick or treat...?

We're happy to report that the first 178Nm since leaving La Reunion have been a treat. Starting the leg at 1100LT yesterday under sail, our expected forecast of light breeze became quickly apparent and on came the engine. We're currently making 8.5kts motor-sailing towards the SE corner of Madagascar.

An even bigger treat is our new improved auto-pilot. Spare parts arrived to La Reunion from the manufacturer in the UK and were quickly installed with the result being an even more relaxed Wild Tigris crew. Fingers crossed and touch wood that there are no more tricks up Ray (the auto-pilot)'s sleeve…

Until tomorrow, Happy Halloween,
