So while all the Oysters are heading West towards Panama on the start of the world rally, Crazy Daisy is living true to her name and heading North to St.Maarten! For those of you using the yellowbrick tracking system and following the fleet’s progress, you may be scratching your heads and wondering “whether Captain Bob is inebriated? As he’s going in the oposite direction to all the other boats. Anyone who knows us will simply shrug and say “well it is the Morgan boat, we would have been surprised had she headed in the right direction with the rest of the fleet”. And how right they are, we never do the expected. In this case it’s simply that one of the bank of Daisy’s batteries went down and as there are no replacement batteries in Antigua, the crew have to sail back to St.Maarten to have a new one fitted. I believe they are also picking up other parts and spares for Daisy while they are there. St.Maarten is always the best island in the Eastern Caribbean for boat parts and service, and their prices usually can’t be beaten. This small diversion also gives my brother Paul a chance to see St.Maarten, as I don’t believe he has ever been there. Fortunately this small hic-up in the route is not a problem as there are basically 6 weeks allowed for the fleet to reach Panama, commonly a 5 – 6 day leg, depending upon weather. So once the new battery is aboard, Daisy’s crew will turn around and set sail for Panama to join the rest of the fleet. I hope this will be the last of the unplanned diversions, but I’m not holding my breath. Follow the fleet on: ….
