Pub crawl?

160Nm from St Helena and the excitement aboard the good ship Wild Tigris is palpable! The only problem is that the breeze seems to be dropping out again. The same thing happened yesterday evening and resulted in 7hrs of motoring. Although this put us on course at 8kts, we burned approx. 112lts of fuel. Fingers crossed it picks up after sunset…

Of note today; another couple of tiny Dorado landed by Sofia, Swedish crepes (savory and sweet!) for lunch, pasta Carbonara for dinner, interspaced with a lemon and coconut cake…the crew are all looking forward to Jacob’s ladder…900steps from the harbor up to a lookout!

Other ‘not to miss’ activities under discussion at the moment include visiting the house Napoleon lived in while he was exiled here, an open-top-bus pub-crawl (I was surprised they had more than one…bonus!), renting a car and taking in the spectacular scenery, diving, fishing and more.

Roll on Wild Tigris!
