12.00 4th March - now on Aden time (GMT -3 hrs)

Second deliberate mistake. It may have felt like it but it was not day 32
yesterday. (Day 13)

A couple more tuna for our roll call. One last night and another small one
this morning. Aden made its first appearance soon after dawn. We had been
in the shipping lanes for most of the night but visibility is so good and
ships are well behaved so we have not had to alter course. Still motoring in
very light winds but no problems or fishing boats to deal with.

Pass Aden breakwater at 12.00 precisely and drop anchor 15 minutes later.

Passage successfully completed in exactly 14 days, covering 1762 miles at an
average of 5.24 knots

Now to complete the paperwork!
