Short Update

9.2.14 – Sunday – Two Oceans has reached the island of St. Helena. We left Namibia on January 30th for the 1222 miles trip. On the second day we caught our biggest fish ever – a yellowfin tuna of 16 kg, a lot of food for the crew. We had reasonable winds for the first six days but then they became light and on the last two and a half days we had to motor a lot arriving at the St. Helena moorings area at 1800 on Friday, February 7th.

The town did not change a bit since I’ve been here four years ago. There is no cellular phone system here and the available internet is slow, unreliable and expensive; not good enough for uploading large files.

 

We plan to leave for Ascension Island on Tuesday, a trip of about five days and hopefully be able to publish from there. Brazil is next… but I’ll write about that on the next update.

Until then – Adios from Miki and Dany on Two Oceans!
