Today I saw our first albatross! Weather remains fairly benign with bigger stuff on its
way in 36-48 hours. Probably bigger than the weather we started with which is currently
hard to imagine. Further, we’ll be flying our kite (code 3) through it rather than
white sails which will mean select helms only and lightening quick reflexes.
Disappointingly overnight GB made big gains on us but morale remains very high and
everyone seems to be getting on with everyone else…..
Today is the first day where I’ve not used all my off time for sleep. I’m going to try
to brush my hair. I have allowed 90 mins for this and I’m dredding it(see what I did
there!). Speaking of Emily, aromas are developing nicely! Eating like kings and
queens – Chilli Con Carne last night, porridge and nutella for breakie, homemade bread
rolls and coleslaw for lunch.
