Motoring endless motoring,
Nothing to see, hear, do,
The drone of the incessant machine,
Moving, moaning, unstatisfying.
Intensifying thoughts and moods.                      (Set to 'Piano Phase' by Steve Reich)
Just under 300nm to go and absolutely no wind to speak of.  So, what can we do?  Motor on and watch the fuel guages drop.  Kay and Giles are calculating usage down tot he last litre and mile.  Will we get there in time?
Also a day of maintenance.  Fenders, safety netting, fuel tanks, toilets (thanks Ant)
Had Tuna swimming just astern.  Dropped a line in to see what would happen.  In a flash one took the lure and in the same instant it had broken another hook off, and sushi was off the menu again, and back to spam!
