Trogging Along - Day 10
James (Skipper) & Claire (best crew in the world)
Tue 31 Dec 2013 13:24
Another day in a very empty ocean, sun and wind much as the day before. Slightly heavier rain overnight but come the dawn, come the sun...Claire is back on cooking duties so James will not starve to death, especially as there was no fishing done yesterday - simply too busy doing not a lot!! We did spend some time experimenting with the stay sail, in the absence of being able to pole out the Yankee, but really to no advantage. We continue to cruise along averaging around 5 knots, and we are still close to our Great Circle Route but definitely heading more towards the south west the further we proceed....800 nm to go. No sign of scurvy or cabin fever, as we trog along merrily.
