Day 36 Passage to Trinidad Friday  4th March 2016


Position 03°55'N. 047°00'W

Wind 18kts speed 4kts

Well what a day it's been out here we have had a shocking lumpy sea, with storms around, rain, high winds and overcast.
We have been thrown every which way it's like being in a washer machine.

It did settle every now and than and I managed to get our cabin almost dry, it looks like most of the water coming in was from the hatch above our bed.

I have been experimenting with different covers over the hatch from the out side, now it has a kinda plastic lining, a hatch cover and than another cover tied over the top of that.
Let's see the god damn rain come in now.

I've been busy on and off all day, trying to fix leaks, clean up a bit and do a bit of cooking, in the middle of all this we have been trying to catch up on our sleep.

Our sleep pattern is all out of whack, as The Captain needs to be there when the storms hit, and I have to wake him a lot, which means he gets really tired and tries to catch up on missed sleep.
Than I get really tired as I feel so sorry for him, so I let him sleep as much as I can, but than I'm missing out on sleep so I'm over tired as well, and it's hard to get to sleep in storms as we get blown all over the place.

We checked the chart plotter today, well we check it everyday, but today we have under 1000nm to go, yay
Finally we are getting there we are averaging still around 80nm a day so we should have only about 12 days to go.

Man it's been a long hard trip, I'm so over it all, I just want to see land, I'm tired, stressed and just plain warn out.

Well tomorrow is another day.
