A few hundred miles up the track the Tradewinds are less
strong so come 2012, we should be in much better conditions.
Not much sleeping possible as you are thrown around in
your bunk by the boats motion so much, but the off watch are at least getting
some horizontal time, interspersed with moments of vertical movement!
Going on watch in a few minutes, and dawn will follow
soon afterwards, so the will be able to
see these waves better, and try to avoid the potholes..
Just time for another bowl of hot porridge, to mark our
position on the wall chart, and put on the Musto foul weather gear, then into
Happy New Year!"
