An overcast Sunday at sea. The wind has faired a little more and the Studding Sail booms were run out again this morning.
To mark the occasion of being a little more than half way across we held a ‘social hour’ on the quarter deck this afternoon, and to counter the grey day the crew came up in brightly coloured outfits and spent some time enjoying the company of the other watches over popcorn and cool drink.
