We are experiencing interminable swell that causes the
boat to roll endlessly making anything even sleeping very difficult. Helming is
quite a challenge too! Aching arms and shoulders, and the crew are getting
tired. Sleep, eat, steer, repeat. Sleep, cook, steer repeat. Sleep,clean, steer,
repeat. Dark nights and starry nights, bright days and cloudy days the time just
passes by. Watch after watch we are making progress, and last night we passed
the point of less than 1000 miles to go. Woo hoo hoo!
The fresh food is
coming to an end-lots of onions and apples and a few courgettes left. We now
have jars and tins and imaginative cooking! Anyway it is Friday and the weekend
will bring a move on of watch partners on Saturday and another hour off the
clock on Sunday. That will be UTC -3!
