Hello there, very strange experience this sailing malarkey. I have just had my first five hours sleep. We have been on board now for three days and it’s been an experience. I myself have never sailed before so it’s a bit of a shock when you’re asked to drive the boat … “Fine”, I said. Richard the skipper was trying to explain how to balance yourself when at the helm he says its like driving a car, “Fine”, I said “but I don’t drive”! Ahh … Sea sickness has been and gone hopefully; all in all so far so good. As you probably know by now I’m the crewman who tried to feed the world with my three kilos of rice … My watch consists of myself, Greg, Andy W, Andy M and not forgetting our figurehead Emma K and we are known as the Mighty White Watch. Any way enough from myself, I’ve got duties to do, so long speak to u soon.
