It is still the middle of the night, the first night with some moonlight since we left the Chatham Islands. The day was beautiful, we had the topsails up for a few hours, but had to let them down again as the wind increased to 22 knots from the north north east. The sun was out for most of the day, so everybody was outside reading a book or writing in their journals.

The contact with the other Europa and Oosterschelde has come to a nice rhythm again, we are following each other around and tomorrow our voyage crews will have their first radio journal contact. A weekly appointment to swap gossip and see what the others are up to.

Today (the 10th of November) it is exactly a year ago that we got our crew on board to start our world circumnavigation. Exactly a year ago that we had our goodbye evening in Den Helder, with family and friends. A year ago that bags where packed, the ship loaded full with food, rope, newly varnished wood and lots of dreams and adventures ahead. Today we are almost 2 weeks into our journey around Cape Horn, back on the West side of the world!
