Sunday 22nd May 2011 (Day 12)   


Awoke to find ship rolling heavily again . We are clearly back on course – 90 degrees.


Missed breakfast so made some porridge on the bridge just before communal coffee time


Noon Position: 48:16N 15:06W

12:30 Lunch. Had mentioned to the Chef I like curried shrimps and what do we get for lunch today? Yes, king sized shrimps with a bowl of curry. Also some sort of burgers on the table for the meat eaters.


Worked on bringing logs up to date in pm.


C.O.G. 90 degrees; S.O.G. 18.4kt ETA at Pilot pick up 20:15 so on this basis docked by say 22:30 hrs. Still have a good roll on.


17:30 Evening meal. Fish.


18.15 Went aboard Bootlegger to check on her and in particular, the battery state. 23 .7V

Put them on 30 a charger for the night. Bloody cold out there now; my fingers were numb.


Put some washing in before returning to my cabin to do this log entry and carry on with the rest. Might do some initial packing this evening so I don’t have to do it all tomorrow.
