Another day, another hemisphere...

At 1130 local time this morning, Wild Tigris crossed the Prime Meridian into the Western Hemisphere. Strangely, there was no mention of Bubbly…just a quiet appreciation of another milestone. A few hours on, the quiet appreciation had manifested itself into double rations of sundowners and even a glass or two of wine with dinner! Party on!

We are now 470Nm from St Helena and travelling at 7-8kts with blue skies and a warm SE breeze. Hopefully tomorrow’s forecasted drop in wind won’t mean too much, if any, motoring.

Finger crossed, cheeseburgers in paradise and God Bless Jimmy Buffet,
