Remarks: The swell has started to lay down and we are still making good speed. Dee and Zoe went up to loose royals for the first time this morning coached by Clara and Edmund. The newbies are making ditty bags with Line. Today’s segment: grommets. We have lots of sailmaking planned on for the long next passage and it’s nice to get some more people trained up in those skills beforehand. St. Helena is just around the corner and we are enjoying the last days of this passage.
