10,00hrs ( local time ) Radio Call, We had already as usual sent in our position by email,
We are still up there with the front runners, all of whome are giving us time,
 
 
12.oohrs Still sailing along merrily, the wind goes left a little so we put the boat goose winging again.
 
Nothing much to report and the skipper has no stories today,
 
Aileen did a Cottage Pie for dinner, however , the red hot bowl full of Pie, fell out of the oven ( When a wave hit us broadside) onto
her foot, The poor girl, whatever about the foot, But she had spent so much time and effort into making this.
However, She recovered quickled and managed to save enough pie to feed the over stuffed crew.
Once She discovered the Wave was our ( S&D ) fault, she was happy out and we really enjoyed that Pie
Alls well that ends well,
 
Do you know that we discoveredweeds growing half way up transome, because its under water so much,
