12/11/12 - Lord Nelson
Day 25 12th Nov
Somewhere off Africa creaming along at eight knots, this is what sailing is all about. 22 deg and feels about 10. Taking sun sights today to practice our sextant skills, Richard even proved that the GPS was spot on. Lots of happy shipmates scraping paintwork, that is, when they are not watching the flying fish. Tio the monkey who stowed away in bunk 10 having spent two days inside the ships bell has had ago at fixing the radar but didn’t manage it, on being interviewed said he intended to go all the way around the world, provided the Captain doesn’t make him walk the plank first. As they say in the Movies "That’s all folks". Well the tea has just arrived so it definitely is.
