Another gorgeous day in the South Seas, we’re all still recovering from our initiation into the

Shellback community, having had a visit from the king of the deep, Neptune and his entourage.

Several of us are missing patches of hair, and we all got thoroughly wet and messy and suffered a dose of truly vile medicine!

At the end of the ceremony, there was a marriage proposal, and two of the crew, Dan and Anna, are now engaged! This morning we had a sail setting lesson from Mate Jon, followed by a chart update from Captain Barbara, and are now enjoying lovely smooth sailing with the fore and afters set.
