Day 130 24th November 2010
At Midnight – 50°12’N 06°41’ W
At midnight, my nightwatch began. We were zooming along at 6 knots with a little assistance from the currents. Hardly a ship came close. We started to sail due east at 270° so I watched the course for another 20 minutes, there was no change so I asked John to advise. He got up and made some adjustments so we were making some southerly progress again. I napped through the watch setting the alarm every half hour. I slept poorly, though when I drifted off, I had some very nice dreams.
The day was uneventful so I started to read Rosie, the Alan Titchmarsh novel. Later, the seas became choppier but it was still ok, and I napped during the day for my next watch.
Breakfast –Tea, Chelsea bun and porridge with strawberries and brazil nuts
