Wednesday the 3rd of April – Day Seven. Well, for the first time in all the night passages we have ever done over about 37,000 miles, we swapped............Bear did my two until six. Don’t get comfy with the idea, I’m never swapping permanently........, only under duress in these exceptional circumstances. The downside....... my body clock has gone completely awry. This morning it meant I came on duty at seven thirty, handing the skipper his breakfast. Gorgeous to see the genoa filled with a steady, but weak breeze. At least the current and wind are on our side. Indeed a joy.
