Bob phoned, said he wasn’t sure about safety on the Bavaria (the type of boat he’s on). He still hasn’t seen the boat under sail. I think they’ve set off for the Galapagos Islands so he’ll have had that experience by now. I suspect ‘Mystique Soul’ may not be as fast as his own ‘SY Peperuka’, (a Shearwater), which means he’ll be in for a disappointment. I hope they’re still enjoying each other’s company when they reach the islands, or he might cut the trip short!
