Day’s Run – 8 January, 2016

We’re making ready for the next passage: we will depart for Dakar, Senegal tomorrow morning. That means we’ve been busy loading food, water and fuel, getting the bilges pumped and decks oiled, sails bent and everything stowed so the ship is ready to go to sea. It also means making sure the crew are trained and ready: we ran through our emergency drills and bracing practice yesterday; loosing, setting, striking and furling all sail this morning and heaps of practice under power and oars in the small boats this afternoon.
