Today we passed the 1000 mile mark by log – 1065 at seven PM (actually we have done 1116 to noon today.)

Had one hour at wheel last night and two this PM. Very hard steering this afternoon with light wind and heavy sea. We are finally making our west course after a long fight. Chas and I fiddled away two hours on the anchor winch and it is now ready for wire-brushing and painting.

The pigs are getting ornery and one tried to break out by loosening one of the slats.

Checked my KL watch and it’s right on the button. Finished Topper Takes a Trip today and found it a screech all the way through. Am now starting Within This Present at Warren’s recommendation.
