Just had a visit from Santa, who was dressed in a red cape and hat, gave out
Presents, and looked the spitting image of Xavier!
We all got two fine chocolates from
A Parisian Chocolatier, and an Opinel knife in custom Banque Pop blue with Trophée Jules Verne inscribed - just what I needed, perfect!
The sailing continues full pace and we did another big days run. Now we are reaching with one reef and Solent,
Really feels different today, sea temp to 15C,Less wind and sails,,albatross gone..
Now time for afternoon siesta!
