SOUTHERN OCEAN BLOG 4: 07.12.19

24 hours since the last blog, and the Ocean bit back! Fabulous electric light show around us for my watch. It arrived locally for the next one and there was no gap between thunder and lightning. No strike on the boat thankfully, but there has been a big wind shift, we heeled hard over so a few lee-cloths were tested and half an hour of hard work all around. No harm done.

Organisation

Over the last couple of days all of us on board are starting to adjust to life on board. A few small but important differences from training. Hot bunking isn’t as bad as it sounds. It is even quite civilised with a friendly bunk buddy. We tidy the space when we get up. Everything in the one locker, the bag rolled up and at the foot of the bed, your buddies placed ready.
