The piles of stuff in the room in our b and b were getting higher and higher. But after this evening they are going to decrease. We took over the boat this evening and cleaned it from end to end. Then we were able to put on board a bit of the stuff we had accumulated in such piles.

At last it feels as though this Atlantic crossing is starting to happen.

Tomorrow there are still more jobs for the Covey Island team, but the list is getting shorter. Our list of jobs has suddenly rapidly increased, and tomorrow night we will sleep on the boat - a real milestone. Our first night on the boat.

Tomorrow we have sea trials and we will be taking Elemiah out to sea - lots of new things to learn about her.
