Day 5

At sea sees the aft starboard watch enjoying clear blue skies, a wonderful sail with everything up and the wind increasing by the minute, gusting 20 knots….wonderful after last night’s watch wallowing in fluky, no wind conditions and eventually having to wear round at 0000……not nice!

Great excitement as Pip has just spotted a flying squid from her port watch position on the bridge….Wow!!!!

On the ‘downside’ poor Mike, ever eager to help/volunteer found himself on his birthday as well, pumping out the bilges….but he did have a lovely birthday cake at morning smoko, thanks to Seb……. Congratulations and well done Mike……..

Monica and the aft starboard watch.
