Day 7


Position 20°27'S, 03°44'E

Well here we still are, we have zero wind again, doing 2.2kts and just rolling around the place.

I've just finished making some bread and waiting for it to rise, well I hope it does it's been a long long time since I have made bread, so I guess we will wait and see.

The Captain has just started pulling up the floor boards once again, to try and see if he can fix this generator I can see all kind of tools and stuff coming back out again.

Last night we had a great sunset, but still no green flash, there is just too much cloud on the horizon, I'm not sure what the sunrises are like as I'm always asleep then, and we also had beautiful phoropherence again in the water, oh man I love it, it's just like ribbons of brilliant light and you see fish zigzagging all over the place.

The Captain misses out on this, and I miss out on the sunrises, I guess you can't have it all.

Oh and in the wee hours of this morning we had to come about again, Yeap we were heading almost to the bottom of South America, it's a pain, to have to do it at that time of the morning, as I was so ready for a sleep, but I guess that's what sailing is all about, you have to put up with crappy stuff as well.

11.30pm still my watch.

Not much is happening, I'm really really tired, and not sure I can last the distance tonight, and my knees are aching.

This is usually a sign of rain, I know it sounds strange but it is always true to form, my mother has its, and my daughter Bek as well, it's like a built in weather station...haha

Just out here in the ocean it's not always accurate as we move from the area real quick, but who knows.

Well I'm going to wake The Captain up, we always try and give each other a decent sleep, but we don't try to be heroes either, it's not good if you fall asleep on watch.

Well tomorrow is another day.
