Remarks: The clouds cleared this morning after wearing ship and putting the wind on the port quarter. Work on the sails continues on the quarterdeck. We are back in the land of flying fish again, rustling them up with our bow wake. Edmund got hit in the head with one last night and Riki has been catching them and leaving them as presents arouind the Captain’s mess and carpenter shop. Still waiting for a bite on the fishing line. Sailing strong.
