I think the Indian Ocean Has Finally Let Me Go!
This what Mark sent me a few days ago after sailing for four days from Richards Bay, heaving-to for three days in forty knot winds, and finally having the seas calm enough to make actual progress toward Cape Town. The Indian Ocean is now behind us and we both are glad. As our friend Lee put it today "that is an angry ocean." Yes it is. It is difficult and unpredictable and I for one am very glad that Mark has finished that leg of this race. We will spend the next few weeks together as a family in Cape Town and celebrate MM's 1st Birthday next week! I can't believe he is almost 1.
