At last he has switched the tumble-drier off and we can move without falling over. After 3 days I'd got to the point where even passing a teaspoon was too much effort.
Downside is the engine's on but I don't care!
Genoa wrapped itself round the forestay 6 times which took 1.5 hrs to sort out (top tip: drive round in circles but make sure you're going the right way round : clockwise in this case ).
GPS packs up at least once per watch now, and the autopilot goes with it usually. Easily reset by switching off and on again, but one wouldn't wish to be stuck in the loo when it happens. I've got a spare GPS but I think it's an NMEA problem so will leave well alone for a bit.
The list of TTD is growing but just for a few hours I'm rejoicing in a stable environment. Beautiful moonlight tonight.
Very peaceful day with no wind at all but more is coming so we are catching up on sleep and enjoying the luxury of eating off a plate and not out of lurching bowls. Blue sky and sun again too and warm..We are still in the tropics after all.
