In the Falklands – Day 2

Warren Buck | January 12, 2010 | Comments (0)

The acting governor of the Falklands stepped aboard this morning for a tour of Ocean Watch.  He was quite easy to host due to his relaxed manner and that he came alone without escort. 

Met a couple from Seattle who have been cruise sailing their boat since 2005.  They have been in Stanley for the last month waiting for a replacement propeller so they can sail on to South Georgia Islands to the SE of here.

 There seems to be a gale moving through here at least once per week.  The weather changes rapidly.  The sea buoy weather forecasts we read every day and the predictions do bear out to be rather accurate.

The dinner last night was fabulous – particularly so due to the gale that was blowing as we ate.
