Here is a characterful member of the crew.  Ram has embraced his role on the yacht and has set about performing as the Purser under a degree of sufferance.  But I am pleased to say that this vital role is in safe hands - he will understand the requirement well for future ocean passages.  Ram is keen to do more and I hope he will gain qualifications and put them to good effect by taking TA soldiers sailing out of Gosport under the watchful eyes of Windy and MJ.
Ram - sense of humour fully intact - receives guidance from the skipper on helming in a straight line!!!
