Which is the best shift ! ! !


It's the night shifts that are the interesting ones, it's dark by 1930 so the night shifts are from 1800 to 0600, 4 3 hour shifts. The best one must be the 2100 to 0000 shift because it is the start of your mother watch, so it is to bed, and wake up when you want in the morning (well by 8am so you can start all the work you have to do on your day off). Getting up at 0240 to be ready for the 0300 to 0600 shift I think must be the worst, but getting use to all of them now so even that one is not to bad.


At least there should be some interest on the night shifts now as we are closer to the coast there are more ships around to keep and eye on.


We even spoke to another yacht on the RC radio net, they were 150mils south of Madeira, so a weak signal will try and call them again tomorrow
