After a recent tea bag audit, it has come to light that the PG tips will
run out in approximately 4 days. Earl Grey, chamomile, vanilla and caramel,
peppermint and Moroccan tea will last the journey. Mandy is quietly confidant
the PG tips can be made to last and is pegging out used tea bags to dry on the
rails for re use. Derek said he’d be happy to swap to Gin and Tonic. Doug was
unavailable for comment. Pete only drinks ovaltine and thinks the whole affair
is a storm in a tea cup. Avril only drinks Earl Grey, chamomile, vanilla and
caramel, peppermint and Moroccan tea.
Other news: Derek was hoisted up the mast in an attempt to uncurl the top 6
inches of the main, which became twisted when yesterdays dorado was landed.
Unfortunately he was unable to take the twist out, but enjoyed the opportunity
to do something manly and dangerous.
Island Wanderer have been closely followed by Sunrise, a Beneteau 47 race
boat since lunchtime. They called us up on the radio and we explained the tea
bag dilemma. They offered to trade tea bags for beer. The crew of Island
Wanderer were unhappy with the terms. They have a cabbage they are willing to
exchange. Negotioations are currently suspended.
