Things we forgot in last blog

Can you believe these men are in open waters 200 miles from anywhere in this boat?  No supplies as far as we could see, apart from our goodie bag!!
The night skies are amazing, when clouds allow, we can see detail in the Milkey Way, the Southern Cross indicating the south pole star and the plough directing towards Polaris (Pole Star) at the same time.  As we are sailing west the Plough is on our starboard quarter and the Southern Cross on the port beam, never too late to study celestial navigation I guess.... Thank goodness for GPS.
There have also been a couple of good sunsets and sunrises.
