Crickey so thats what its like...I mean a great days sail without any overly
dramatic incidents, mast ascents, kite wraps, fish murders or fouled props.
Just a long stonking kite run from sun up to sun down, top speed of 13.4 kts
and hot sunshine ummm!
In fact the only drama today was a watch change-around when Dave swapped
with Al to try to even out the driver quotient on each watch. Much banter
and discussion surrounded this controversial move however it was pushed
through by a covert action and in all seems to be a wise decision. We've
kind of decided to not fly kites at night for the foreseeable future unless
the wind decreases to a point where we absolutely need to. Not a 'fast '
decision I'll grant you but one that keeps Bertie and I from getting greyer
and generally the rest of the troops more relaxed and focussed for kites and
action during daylight hours.
Not much else to report really, we are trucking at 8 to 9 kts in roughly the
right direction now, we had a squallearlier but not a major one and the moon
has made what will be an ever increasing presence to light the way ahead;
