Quite a moment, crossing from the East to the West of Greenwich, but a
long way south.
To celebrate, Rob made a special breakfast of 'Eggs Meridian'. This
consisted of a poached egg with the yolk facing east, resting on a field
mushroom representing the world and topped by a strip of tuna aligned
North to South to indicate the meridian of 0.00 longitude.
Yesterday we flew the spinnaker all day, but the halyard chafed through
so have a few repairs to make.
St Helena is now 360 miles away so should be there Sunday or Monday.
