During the day we are now doing 6hr shifts, partly because it is easier to sail during the day (you get less tired) and so that you don't end up doing the same shift every day.

Mike and Sam made a lovely Quinoa/vegatable/tomato/Tofu thing for lunch, went down a treat with the last of the bagette. And I think we will have snitchzel burger for tonights dinner: mmmmm yummy!!!.

We tried to use the Generator last night, to top the batteries up and run the dishwasher but it kept cutting out, due to over heating. Oliver and Dugie have been working on it this afternoon and the problem was the impellor was in peices (provides cooling water to the engine). Thankfully we had a spare, which has been fitted and all is working good. So we can finally put the dishwasher on...... :-)

Winds are quite light at the moment and we are only managing about 6-7 knots; but the weather is lovely and the sun is even out!
