Remarks: Very good sailing along towards Tahiti. Brass ship’s bells getting polished for the first time in a long time. Looks nice – for about five minutes. Plenty of seas giving us a bit of a rock and roll time but not bad at all. Captain going to give a talk on Tahiti this afternoon on the quarterdeck. New crew Marie-Helene, Mike and others getting the hang of steering this ship. All is pretty good.
