Progress at last for disabled yachtsman Keith White. After about a week of no wind off the coast of Portugal, disabled yachtsman Keith White is now into some steady wind from the north east providing him with a good run south.
Keith is relieved at last to be moving again. No wind is far more frustrating than too much wind believe it or not. It does mean however that he’s been able to continue running maintenance of the boat without being thrown about. He likened the ride across the Bay of Biscay to being inside a washing machine – and just as wet!
So as well as jobs around the boat he’s managed to keep up his own appearance by being able to shave and he’s given himself a hair cut. Although we are not sure who he’s trying to impress – mermaids perhaps?
One more piece of potential news. Keith might be stopping at Gran Canaria. He’s lacking power to run the onboard systems which he’s trying to fix. But he has given advanced warning that he might be stopping to sort this problem out before heading off again. We’ll keep you posted.
22/11/2015 Update: Keith has arrived in Las Palmas to do some maintenance work. We’ll let you know more when Keith has been in touch
