Amazon Creek is Sailing the Atlantic

Sailing the Atlantic
SY Amazon Creek is currently on day 5 of her Atlantic Crossing, where she will be spending the winter season sailing in the Caribbean. Skippered by Abby and crewed by a team of five - Keaton, Matt, Hannah, Charlie and Josh - the yacht left the Canary Islands last week and they are due to arrive in Antigua in early December. You can follow the progress of Amazon Creek on our Facebook page and Instagram, where we'll be posting regular updates of this epic journey.
Whales, Turtles & Light Winds
Daily reports from the crew confirm that everyone is well and enjoying beautiful weather as they sail further south, chasing the trade winds. So far, they have experienced lovely warm temperatures and spotted whales and turtles. However, the light wind has meant more motoring and slower progress than originally planned so Abby is adjusting the route and expectations as they go. The team's first encounter with stronger winds, unfortunately, resulted in a ripped sail, which then meant a short diversion for repairs and refuelling. Currently in Cape Verde, off the coast of Gambia, for a short pit stop, they will be tackling the main part of the crossing from tomorrow.
The team are working together brilliantly, taking turns to do 4 hours on duty and 8 hours off, meaning that they can sail fully crewed 24 hours a day plus everyone gets plenty of rest. Essential daily on-board exercise and highly competitive board games are providing plenty of fun while they ride out the light winds. Communications are limited to one email per day as they sail into more remote waters; everyone is thoroughly enjoying the forced disconnect from the 'real world' to fully engage in the job at hand and enjoy the peace and solitude of being at sea.
