Miranda's Monday Morning Message

Beautiful night, sailing downwind, heading south (yes, I know, Guadelope is to the west, but the Azores High is also not far behind). It's a busy part of the world 3 ships in the last hour, including a cruise ship which passed a mile or so astern - lit up like a christmas tree - and no doubt eqipped with running hot water and a swimming pool or two amongst other amenities. I still prefer Campagne de France.
The inside of the boat is drying out, though shipping water over the deck from time to time, so no airing for now. I'm sure the boat smells of roses anyway. Life on board is pretty simple - steering, nav, check over boat, eating, sleeping, the latter in shortish supply.
Now I know that you want photos, but a selfie is out of the question right now, unless you want to see the latest "bird's nest" hairstyle.
Far better (at least for me!) - see attached - Janet the landlady of Hamble's fine establishment, the King & Queen, gave me the 2015 Hamble's Full Monty calendar, supporting Hamble Lifeboat. So I am taking a select few on a tour of the Atlantic.

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston finishes third in Rhum Class in La Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe Solo Transatlantic Race. Hours from the finish line, when he was locked in a tense final battle with Italian course record holder for his class Andrea Mura, doing all he could to steal second, Britain's Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, 75, pronounced that he would be simply 'ecstatic' if he were to finish third in the Rhum Class of La Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe, the 3542 miles solo race from Saint-Malo, France to Guadeloupe in the French West Indies.
