Miles to go: 921

All is well on board and we've less than 1000 miles to go - hurrah!

Our previous day's boat time adjustment prompted us to revise our overnight watch routine, giving First Mate the notoriously tough Midnight - 3 a.m. watch. Bad move. Struggled all night long and dog tired today, so we'll have to re-think that one.

The fresh provisions are now very low indeed; carrots, onions, garlic, ginger and apples are all that's left, so we're starting to rely increasingly on our extensive supply of tins, jars and dry goods.
