it is so hot here, just a five minute walk leaves you sweaty and sticky. and withing the next 8 days i will be in the north of norway, inside the artic circle where it is freezing bloody cold! in my luggage, i have shorts and t shirts, fleeces and wooly hats, the contrast will be nipply to say the least.
I am leaving palma on wednesday 5th september and sailing from a place called Bodo in the north of norway, heading down past england, around the top of france, across the bay of biscay, all the way down the west coast of portugal before turning east and then heading across the algarve and towards gibraltar and finally into the med and back to palma.
will then have around a month to prepare the boat and sail it to the canaries and from there, it will be a race to the caribbean, so a busy rest of year for me.
i am feeling a good moan coming on this week so be sure to come back soon for what is sure to be an epic read
