Day 9

05° 58'S. 96° 30'W

2532nm to go

1am my watch

Well we are trying to get our watches back in order, as its not working out real good how we are doing it now.

The Captain has been trying to let me sleep longer as I have had this head cold, and an upset tummy for days, but it's resulted in The Captain losing a lot of sleep, and then me trying not to sleep so he can have more sleep, and on and on it goes.

So now we are back at nighttime to 3-4 hour watches and see how that goes.

8am

Well we are still at it, man I know I have said this daily, but it's really wearing us down, we are just rocking and rolling the whole time.
I just want it to settle down.

We have the trade winds now, these we have been waiting for, to make us go quicker, and we thought it would settle the sea down as well, we were wrong.

I managed to do some washing today, just the towels and tea towels, and have rigged up a line in the cockpit, with a few flaps open, and hope the breeze drys them.

This line was very hard to put up with the boat rocking all over the place, and a little scary moment when the boat rocked and I landed on The sound asleep Captain...hahaha
But I managed to get them hung and they are flapping away as I write, spraying drops of water all over the place. :-/

As for the fish none today, even though I hunted around the boat for bait, of flying fish, and found a few but no luck.

Well tomorrow is another day.
