Last night’s watch was dry for three hours and fifty minutes. The other two watches it rained buckets. Rained a little on today’s watch, but I was in engine room cleaning tools for two and a half hours so I did not get on deck until it was over.

We took the squaresail down off yardarm after lunch and the rips were sewn and the sail bent on again all in one afternoon.

Weather seems to be trying to clear·, but I’m afraid it’s more rain tonight – damnit. Our watch is now known as the “Collapsible Watch” because of our tendency to pop right off to sleep. Slept two and a half hours this afternoon just in case I can’t on watch.
