Hi 's Everybody

Shock, horror! It's rained. OK, it wasn't exactly a tropical storm. In fact,
you probably wouldn't insult it by calling it shower, but after 10 days of
unbroken sunshine, it came as a bit of a surprise, especially to Wiggy, who
happened to be on deck at the time.

We are currrently under spinnaker with no main, making around 5 knots over
the ground. Yesterday we were well and truly in the Gulf Stream, banging
along at a great rate of knots. At one point we were hitting 9+ knots over
the ground which helped us put in the fantastic distance reported above,
which is a record for Wing & A Prayer.

The bad news from the purser is that the tonic might not last the distance.
Any suggestions for making gin and sea water palatable will be most welcome.
Alternatively, if supplies do begin to run short we'll have to pop into the
nearest Tesco to top up.

Oh, and Graham still hasn't caught a fish.

Best Regards
