All well on board. Currently crossing the scary Gulf of Squirrels. (no squirrels sighted, but did spot an inflatable pink turtle!)
We have lost all wind, and so are putting in to Crotone for the night. We’ll anchor off the harbour and hope for a bit more breeze tomorrow. We may pick up fuel if the fuel barge is open in the morning. Happy Sunday everyone.
