Oct 19, 2010-Dispatch #9 from Indian Ocean-

Day 19; 19.45.093S 58.26.080E

A very quiet morning on our last morning at sea. At 07:00 AM the sun is up and glorious, the sea is up a bit, the wind is 22 knots and building, Pierre & Judy are still sleep on the settees and Wings rocks on silently, racing ever westward.

After 17 days on port this morning we jibed onto starboard to set up our approach to the north end of Mauritius. At 08:30 we will jibe back. It might not be the last jibe and that depends on the anticipated wind shift as the trades deflect around Mauritius.

Mauritius is sixty miles out now, not yet visible but I am watchful. The mountains of Mauritius should soon appear on the horizon; landfall after 19 days at sea. It will be a welcome sight.

Fred & Judy & Pierre, SV Wings, Indian Ocean

I have never cruised, always have raced. Too old now, to change. As I have always said: in racing you have to be just good enough; in cruising you have to be perfect. Godspeed, you guys.
