Speed – 7 - 8 knts
An interesting day, to say the least. We were blessed
with a good strong breeze all day, which allowed us to make good progress
Sea food It was now time for supper courtesy of Antonio Chefinni’s world famous seafood risotto. As night closed in everyone settled down as Gwawr merrily went on her way. Whatever went into tonight’s meal had some strange effect on Dez and Tony who spent their entire watch composing little poems about anything and everything that inspired them! By the end around 16 little poems were completed, some recorded by Gareth, others might make it into a book, so high was the standard!!! Dez will enter some of his for the Chair at next year’s eisteddfod at Chwilog.
East to west Round the bend
From east to west we travel far I’ve been to sea days on end
Across the sea to find the bar enough to drive me around the bend
The coldest beer is on our list after listening to the African drum
Lets hope to god we don’t get pissed. Now it time to enjoy the rum.
Surprise Journeys end
As the crew sit down for tea, 1star 2star 3star more
They are surprised in what they see
will they lead us to
Minke whales swimming by
None of them were camera shy then round the corner we’ll quench our thirst.
The Star above Lonely seas
As I see a shooting star There are no ships or yachts in sight
Yet again it’s so far, nothing to race or give us a fight
As I make a little wish so we must sail our lonely way
I hope one day I’ll catch a fish. All the way to Rodney bay.
