Having seen quite a few dolphins the profound question of "do dolphins ever sleep" has been posed. That question was overshadowed by Philip's  question of what do dolphins do all day anyway? The family of dolphins that surrounded us for a while certainly seemed to be having fun ... perhaps that's all there is to it.
A new way of waking up Mark has been discovered. The recorded noise of a screaming reel played near his ear has so far succeeded every time.
Ben is still doing the calculations after using the sextant on Monday and has managed to pinpoint our position to the North Atlantic. Colin has suggested that a little more accuracy may be in order and Ben is hard at work once more. After a hectic night watch Andy is still asleep.
