That's ok as our stores will ensure we do not go hungry!!!!

This morning we set the reaching sail to keep boat speed up. Hoisting the
sail felt like a PE class on the forward deck. However our efforts were
duly rewarded by a wonderful breakfast prepared by Dilip. Bombay potatoes

Due to the heat, not much activity happened during the day. At lunchtime,

focus of activity in the morning as all other maintenance tasks are under
