Motored: 46.97 nautical miles --- for 8 hours 15 minutes
Sailed: 194 nautical miles --- for 31 hours 13 minutes
Total: 240.97 nautical miles --- for 39 hours 30 minutes
194 miles of it was accomplished under sail power alone! The remaining miles were accomplished with the assistance of our beloved diesel engine who we have named "Mr Perkins" (Perkins Model 4108) in order to show due respect to the boat powers!
While we have made this crossing several times over the years, we have never been able to catch the perfect wind and actually sail a distance of such magnitude. Kudos to my beloved Captain - Philip who managed most of this single-handedly due to the fact that his first mate was sick in bed with a rotten cold.
The meditation attached to this card taken from Around the Tarot in 78 Days is:
"The call of ambition is strong and we must try to act upon it, lest we spend a lifetime regretting what we didn't do. As a wise man once said, "People cannot discover new oceans unless they have the courage to lose sight of the shore."
So, this card is all about being strategic, planning and deciding just where it is you want to go. You must take into consideration what you have to give, think innovation and fresh new ideas. Using this as our own example of how to fully live our lives, my mate and I have shared our vision with each other and joined forces to make it happen!
