Sarah Mercedes - Day 3
Today brought a wake up call of a "****, ****" from Graham as the bilge pump would turn itself on throughout the night, and after Graham would turn it off and get in bed, it would once again turn on, almost mocking him. This brought today's morning job of Rob and Pete B burrowing into the bow locker to see if water was upsetting the sensor. Alas, no water. The diagnosis instead was a switch problem at the circuit board. We continue motoring west with a lack of wind in our quest for the edge of the strong weather system to our north-west. We hope to be sailing in good wind by tomorrow morning, and with few jobs left, many of the crew are twiddling their fingers anxious to feel a breeze and get the kite up.
