Avventura - Bermuda - Azores : Day 13

38:59.050N 33:31.165W alle 21:00 (22:00 UTC) del 29 maggio 2023.
Today was undoubtedly a slow day. In fact the most exciting event was when we tacked, at around 3:45PM. We didn't do much before that, the manoeuvre  lasted maybe a minute, and then we didn't have much else to do for the rest of the day.
I decided to go around the boat asking everyone what they were up to. But not the humans -most of those were sleeping- but rather the personified objects that travel with us.
I went near the bow and saw Marvin the tender, deflated and contortionated inside his case. Like the galactic robot that inspired his name, he still found a way to complain and let out a depressed sigh when I sat on it to watch the waves.
At the back hard at work were Carola and Siuzy. Carola is the autopilot, brave but strong minded. We let her steer the boat sometimes, but have to accept that she ultimately decides which harbor we are going to. Siuzy the wind turbine gives us plenty of electricity, at the cost of sounding like a giant mosquito flying behind us.
Patrick is our pink fishing bait, but he's not very smart under the sea because we haven't fished anything yet. These days he sits by Samantha, our astronaut crew. She always watches the sea but seems to have a particular interest in the stars at night.
Finally there is Geoffrey the water maker, who lives inside a cupboard by the toilet. Despite these harsh conditions, he does his job dutifully, inspired perhaps by a certain majordome in Bel Air.
