Some good team work over the last few watches including rigging the port spinnaker pole ready for the other watch to gybe and this morning when we had an issue with the staysail. The clew became disconnected and swift action meant the sail was lowered, reconnected and returned within 5 minutes. Good job team. Then we arrived at the roundabout - apparently rain causes team members to disappear down the companion way faster than if dinner was ready, fortunately I was able to keep enough on deck to ensure we could react to an issue. After the squall passed I found most of them asleep in the saloon, the birthday party today seems to have taken its toll! The team spirit to celebrate Michele 25th birthday was nice to see and the whole crew coming together and enjoying each other’s company longer than the normal 5 minutes around watch changes.
The steady supply of fish do help to keep moral up, even though I witnessed the scene out of the inbetweeners earlier with someone trying to knock out a fish.
