Remarks: All sail is set and we’re making 7 knots in the right direction. The course sail is getting roped on the quarterdeck by Leo and Dee. Ollie, Liam and Bruce tackle wire seizings on the whisker stay and on the fore shrouds. The energy level on board is high – anticipation building all day – we are four miles south of the equator and closing fast. The four pollywogs onboard are in for an interesting afternoon (Benita, Dee, Eric and Bruce).
