ARC Day 5 - 28 Novembwe
The Adventures of Allegria & Crew
Thu 28 Nov 2019 16:40
another lovely day, calm seas, blue skies, sunshine and precious little wind! Skipper declared it a sunbathing day - which didn't prevent the ususal sail changes in an effort to catch every bit of puff. Still, we are in the company of other ARC boats, and one lost soul appears to be following us. Tailgating? from what we hear on the ARC Fleet SSB Transmissions which we can pick up with varying degrees of clarity - light winds everywhere and some boats are motoring. Our American fellow ARCers are no doubt glad of conditions as they celebrate Thanksgiving - full blown turkey roast dinners - not sure Allegria's gallery could cope with that!
Everyone has adjusted to the watch system it seems and deals with the "graveyard" shifts in their own way - I was bopping to Queen and Sanata at midnight....but only on my toes as I don't think Sue n Terry would have appreciated proper elephant dancing above the aft cabin.The finale was a silent rendition of "You'll Never Walk Alone" - lip synching mid Atlantic - who'da thought it
