and yes we are out of water, so a trip to the heads is now accompanied by a smart yellow bucket of seawater. The water-maker has gone on the blink but we have sufficient bottled water. We are not yet in Ancient Mariner mode. We also have impressive quantities of Rioja and Vina Sol
A word on reading matter. We have the New Statesman, London Review of Books and Yachts and Yachting, all of which are well thumbed. Also vol 2 of W Manchester’s biography of Churchill (The Last Lion) – Tim and Jeremy are reading this in shifts, it is actually Tim’s book but Jeremy’s mark is now ahead of Tim’s. The word is that because Tim is a lawyer who charges by the hour his instinct is to read slowly. Also The Silkworm (J K Rowling’s second detective book) a book about an Everest Exhibition, and Bill Bryson’s “One Summer- 1927”
