The day offered a bit of everything: Weather in the morning started off quite rude - rolling the ship backwards, forwards and sidewards. Sometimes all in one time - at least it felt like this. Seasickness mugged the voyage crew nearly halving it down in size until lunchtime. After supper, the weather god was apparently more mild with us, the weather cleared up, windspeed went down to zero and we had a nice calm and sunny cruise during the afternoon.
Literally it was more a drift than a sail that offered some the opportunity to enter the second platform up on the mast. The nightshift started with a beautiful sundown and a glimpse on the coast of Scotland. Before the day ended the deck officer gave us a last challenge and chance to warm up our deep frozen muscles by pulling a few more lines and ropes to bring down the sails.
