Day’s Run – 9 June, 2017

 

By: Purser Allison

Hove to at 0820 for weather and rode out the force 8 winds and 6-metre waves. At 1300 the weather broke and we started to see sunshine and resumed our course, bending on the mizzen topmast stays’l and downrigged the heavy weather gear. We celebrated Matt’s birthday and enjoyed cake and a visit from a small pod of dolphins. A far more peaceful night than that before as we caught up on rest and prepared for the beautiful day to follow.
