Wonderful watch last evening – winds gusting up to gale force 8, 3 meter swells and Nelly whizzing along at over 7 knots. The whole watch was on the bridge feeling elated. Later as the fog closed in, we had the eerie sight of the moon peeping out from the clouds. It was the first time in a very long we had had darkness at night so seeing the golden hue of the moon through the clouds was a novelty. It was a beautiful end to a quiet Sunday.
Indeed, so quiet was Sunday there wasn’t a murder on board all day! (We are currently playing a complicated murder game among the crew, as detailed in the 30th June blog!).
More interesting is watching the development of our younger crew members. Aft Port is blessed with 3 young men of 17, 18 and 19 years who have learned to engaged with their older crew members, assist individuals with disabilities in a kind and genuine manner and develop their people skills. Undoubtedly this trip will benefit them and make them very fine young men.
Best wishes to all our loved ones – Aft Port – Roly, Myles, Euan, Barbara, Beryl, Jane, Doris, Tadhg and Robin
