Horrifed at the loss of land Ben decided to work out where we are using the sextant. Using the "rapid" sight reduction method he may work this out by the evening. Andy found that by changing the heading he could make the boat go much faster than anyone else .... the trouble was that this new heading was towards Africa rather than the Caribbean. Philip and Mark spent much of the morning working out how the new fishing reel works ... they did think about waking up Andy for guidance ... Ben and Colin are considering running a sweppestake on how long it takes to catch anything. Dinner last night  - bit of a team effort - was bangers, mash and beans. This was widely acclaimed and has set the challenge for the daily cooking contest.
We now have a new crew member on board called Ray. Ray is an excellent helm and has eaten none of our food. We are not sure whether we have to register Ray with the ARC guys ... we have not been able to find his passport and have warned him he may have to stay on board when we reach St Lucia. Walter the water maker been busy making fresh water and is now having a rest as Andy complained the noise was keeping him awake.
