Day 1

18⁰22’S. 175 51’E.

  572nm to go.


Today is the reason why I have classed myself as crazy anyone in their right mind would never cross an ocean on a sailboat in seas like this.

It has been shocking and still is big waves, strong wind and just plain uncomfortable. I am seasick and just to make matters worse the water maker has stopped working again, and major disaster in my world my ipad is stuffed.

It was playing up before we left and not charging properly but I managed to fix that but sometime in the early hours of this morning, I was asleep with it beside me on the day bed, when it fell off the mattress  through the window in the cockpit and crashed onto the floor in the work shop cabin.

Great just great, I raced down and expected it to be in a million pieces, but not even the screen was cracked, which is amazing in itself. But it won’t charge anymore no matter what we try it’s dead flat and that’s it.

So my whole world has come crashing down, I have nothing to occupy myself with, I’m always playing games or reading or writing my blog updates, or plotting our journey on the many apps I have on there.

Now it’s all gone, other than the sheer boredom I now face, I just hope I have not lost everything on there, as I also have a lot of photos as well.

So am writing my blog on the computer at the moment and am not impressed at all. I feel like just chucking it all in, am over sailing, this boat as everything breaks all the time and this ocean is so not fun. And I miss my girls and my boy.

Well tomorrow is another day.
