Update 31st March 2014
I have been trying to thank everyone who sent in emails to the website while I was away. But…I sent so many emails in one day that the email provider has closed my account thinking that such an abnormally large amount of emails must be someone sending out spam! I’m having a real job trying to get it open again.
So if you have replied to an email from me labelled fsmail.net then I won’t see it or be able to access it. If you need to reply then please message via the website.
Update 30th March 2014
Well, that’s me back home again. All my connections went well from Punta Arenas to Shetland and although there were two night flights back to back I was able to sleep for a few hours on each of them, so it wasn’t too bad. As we flew out over the west coast of Chile the weather looked fine and settled, just what Elsi and me could have done with a few weeks ago.
Elsi Arrub solo non-stop circumnavigation
Andrew Halcrow and Elsi are attempting another singlehanded, non-stop circumnavigation. This time it will be a westabout voyage.
The route will be from Falmouth down through the North and South Atlantic then round Cape Horn. Up the west coast of South America, across the South Pacific in the SE trades to the Torres Straits. Across the Indian Ocean, round the Cape of Good Hope and back up to Falmouth. Departure from Falmouth will be early November and Elsi should be back in Falmouth early December 2014.
This website will be updated on a regular basis. There may not be something new every day but we hope to keep you informed regularly with Elsi’s position and any relevant news. Andrew would like to thank everyone who has helped in any way or has passed on good wishes.
