Tuesday 20th July
Distance run in 24 hours 68
Total distance run 946
Thought we would be in Malta by now, but still have some way to go. The distance covered in the last 24 hours has dropped considerably, but at least we are moving in the right direction. 2.8 knots SOG in 4.7 knots of wind. Could be worse.
We have plenty of food and water, but have now run out of bread. So first attempt at making bread on board. It came out ok, but was a bit dense so needed to have proved a bit longer.
We are also now into our iron rations, so dinner yesterday consisted of a Fray Bentos tinned chicken and mushroom pie with mash (real potatoes) and tinned veg. It sounds horrible but was one of the best meals I've had on the trip. Not sure why- maybe it just reminded me of England.
