So we have finally arrived at Grenada - although we still have to sail up to St Lucia to finish the rally as Eowyn was laid up in Grenada we actually started from here so have completed our own personal circumnavigation.
So winter is over for me – back in South Africa where it has been very hot.
I have not posted for a while as we have not had good email facilities. We have now reached South Africa so have finished crossing the India Ocean.
Éowyn is in Bali marina, Benoa in position 8:44.425S 115:12.803E
Éowyn is presently in Port Resolution, Tanna, Vanuatu in position 19:31.491S 169:29.727E - We arrived here at noon on 6th July after a pretty lively passage.
We sailed from Bora Bora to Suwarrow which is a very small island group with no inhabitants. It is a nature reserve, there is a caretaker there sometimes but he wasn't there when we arrived - so it was deserted. There were several yachts in that night so we went ashore and had a pot luck party.
I have been a bit bad with emails recently as the internet connections have been bad.
Éowyn is at anchor in Hiva Oa, Marquesas in position 09:48.199S 139:01.893W
We arrived in the Marquesas at 0400 on the 26th March.
Éowyn is still under way to Marquesas in position 07:47.980S 123:10.410W on Friday 19th March with just over 900 miles to run. The last few days have been dominated by repair work.
Éowyn is in Puerto Ayora, Isla Santa Cruz, Galapagos in position 00:44.893S 90:18.533W
After we received the news that Bristol Rose was safe and well, we continued our sail to the Galapagos.
