Aft Starboard Watch continue the log in the form of an installment of the BALLAD OF LORD NELSON (full text to be published at the end of the voyage. To be sung to the tune of 'My Bonnie lies over the ocean' :
Next morning the wind was from eastward
We motored to get clear of land
Then set sail and tacked our way northward The sun, sea and wind were all grand.
Past Harris and Lewis to leeward
And Skye on the starboard our sight.
'Hand sails again!' called the Captain
'We'll motor awhile till midnight.'
