Warren damn near got killed today when the fish block fell from the yard and missed him him by an inch or so. Read half of Walk Like a Mortal this PM and it is very good. Do I know of a somewhat similar case to Gabe’s?
Sighted land around six PM and a few minutes later I saw a three-masted schooner apparently headed for Bahia also. Probably a cargo craft. We really have been boiling along these last couple of days with a good NE breeze. Last night we had jibtop, jib, square, raffee, maintop, fish, main, and fore all pulling gallantly.
