I've been quietly dozing in my bunk, but the team on deck decided to do some tacking practice.  The banging and crashing on deck was too much, so thought I would try a few words for the blog before it is my turn to keep them awake.  Weather is windy, but with starlit skies to guide our way, so my next watch will make up for my previous one, when we had nothing but rain for the four hours on watch.  That's when you find out what is actually waterproof.
Quick word to my wife, Sheila, who came down to wave me goodbye. (She was the one in the floaty dress on an windy day.  Nice legs.)  Thinking of you and the rest of the household and thanks for putting up with my increasing excitement over the last few weeks.  Love you loads.   Muuuuua
