Nothing really to report, it’s sunny and windy, and wavy. We may gype after lunch, but there is no rush. Still making good progress.

Once again, the stars were out last night, but as soon as I was in a position to take a star sight they all went and hid behind clouds, maybe I’ll try again tonight, on watch 0300 till 0600 so may get them as the sun just comes up. Would be nice to get a position derived from a star sight rather than the sun.

Richard wanted to run a astro nav all the way to St Lucia, At the time I failed to understand that what he meant was I was to run an astro nav all the way to St Lucia, and he would take the credit, and tell me how i was doing, and how i could do it better. So I have stopped, well i stopped some days ago, and the sextant hasn’t been out of it’s box.
