Wednesday 21st August 2013

01°34S. 83°27W. 

3277nm to go.

Day 3

My watch 2.30am

Well I did not get much sleep we have had some rough seas, man we have been tossed all over the place.

We were hit by one of those big momma, waves and scared the life out of us, it actually covered the whole boat, thank god for our new covers.

I think I say this daily, as its got real cold, and they are down more than up lately, and yeap we are not wearing jumpers, but it won't be long and we will be digging them out.

At the moment we have a full moon, it's incredible it almost looks like day light. 

9pm my watch

Well not a great deal is happening once again, although we did spot a boat on the radar behind us, tonight the first boat we have seen for ages.
It did not get closer than about 4nm so that was ok.

I had been reading up about pirates in The Pacific, so I kinda freak out every time  I see a boat, one thing I had not thought of was to include in my arsenal of weapons, was a spot light.
We do have two really good ones, and I had read that it's a good way to blind them, in the case of an attack. 
If I have to carry out my plan of attack it will take me hours to get it all up here on deck...hahah

I do have to admit when we see a boat I always grab the mace spray just in case.

So once again I sit, I try to keep busy and stay awake, listening to The Captain snoring across from me, and on it goes.

Well tomorrow is another day.
