Day 22 - Time to say Goodbye

Position: 1956 UTC N 014° 23' W 060° 00'

Me and the Atlantic ocean have had a love affair for about three weeks now, and it has been wonderful. But the last two days she has started to get on my nerves. We have had our fights before, but not like this. The sun, the calmness and the beautiful sunrises every morning has now been replaced with rain, irritation and dark clouds. We have now only 57,2 nM (UTC 1956) left before we reach St.Lucia and we are hoping to be in harbour early tomorrow. Perhaps it is for the best. Perhaps it is better to end the love story now, before we destroy what we once had. It feels kind of sad though. I have been seeing her every morning for 22 days now and it is going to feel strange without her. But I now that I will see her again.

Since we are hoping to arrive early tomorrow, today is all about preparations. Unfortunately we haven't really started yet. It sounded like a much funnier idea to watch some more episodes of Sex and the city. We have now only two episodes left before we have seen them all, all episodes from 6 seasons. That is a lot of Sex and the city. But right now there is only a light breeze blowing and we are doing crappy speed, so I guess we will have plenty of time left for the preparations later on today

Wish us luck!!!

    Bra jobbat tjejer!
    Har varit kul att följa er så här långt, och ni har ju massor av äventyr kvar framför er som ska bli roliga att läsa om!
    Blir spännande att se om ni slår Le Livernois i mål och hur resultatet blir med hcp-systemet inräknat.
