Nautical Miles traveled in last 24 hrs:- 114

What a “Quiet” night, had to engine all night and outof the 114 nautical miles, we only covered 99 miles over the ground! We did break the 500 miles to go at midnight , so thats a god stake in the ground.

Sunday today, so after shipping thepole and re setting sails, considering weather forecast and setting course (no change!) it was wash, shave, change for sherry followed by sunday lunch. French Onion soup was the starter created by Paddy, first class I have to say. This was followed by Roast beef, enhance with fresh pepper, chillies and garlic accompanied by fresh (still!) cabbage, mixed veg and fresh mashed potatoes washed down with a bottle of red. We were going to have pancakes for desert but we were all too full.

Then the clear up, ugh!

For todays matanee and next Bond in the sequence was “Octopussy” so after a good and filling lunch our BBC today consisted of Bond, Brandy Coffee.

So after an un eventfull but very enjoyable day of bobing along with no wind endulging in a good Sunday Lunch with the trimmings listening to 60’s music and followed by a relaxing afternoon and a DVD,we; Oh no, we don’t need to “batten down” How things have turned around from the 3 days and nights we had being bounced around in up to gale force winds, high seas and nasty rain and now nothing but “cold” Chris has his heavy snow boots on whilst he is on watch tonight! I came on at 2100 hrs to a calm sea with no wind amnd engine still running. Perhapsthe wind will start up on Andrew’s watch, know more tomorrow!
