Day’s Run – 3 July, 2016

We were expecting more wind and we got it, overnight the wind began to build and we began to shorten sail. By morning the ship was down to Topsails and Course sailing on the wind in a Force 6 breeze.

In the late afternoon the wind moderated just enough to re-set the Main T’gallant but otherwise the crew tended to the ship’s needs and tried their best to enjoy a little bit of a Sunday at sea.
