Leave home on Thu morning at 7:30 am, as per usual. Exit classroom at 8pm and jump in a car to the airport. Arrive HK after midnight and taxi straight to the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club with a friend who has just bought a 47’ yacht there.
The previous owner should have the fridge stocked, engine running, and be ready to cast off as soon as we arrive. The rest of the crew get there earlier in the day so with luck we’ll clear customs and be on the open sea by daybreak.
Then it’s a run east and north up the Taiwan strait, with the objective of hitting Tamshui on Sunday evening. A few of us have to be at work on Monday morning. Fingers crossed.
Yesterday I was jumping up and down, looking at the full moon, and fantasizing about night sailing. Tonight I’m looking at the pissing rain. Yummy. Still, we’ve got 2 TW, 2 Brits, and 2 French on board - one of the latter is the chef de cuisine so if nothing else I’ll be one fat contented bastard by the time we make landfall.
I just had to tell someone!!
