6-8pm: As a pre watch challenge we climbed to the Topsail platform to plan our egg drop. Hold on Laura! However the excitement was too much and we launched into another sing-song starting with "How you ever seen a penguin come to tea?"
Doing all the actions to the song was a bit interesting at that height with 20knts of wind but it was exhilarating and freshened us up for our watch.
We had several attempts at angling the cameras on timers to get a group shot. Hopefully we’ll have time today to delete all the trial pictures of sky, sails, hands, chopped off heads and troll hair before copying our best picture.
The sun was shining and the wind was blowing for our watch. We managed to get to 8knts and nearly broke the 200 mile (as the crow flies) barrier between us and Maloy. After days of perseverance the mood is very jolly on board as we know we will have a position rather than retiring from the race. But more importantly we are having a great adventure. Our 2hr watch soon finished and we made a speedy handover so we could hear the end of Jenny's bedtime story with a night time cap. Ceilidh and Laura stayed up to venture out in the cold windy night to brace sails with other watches in only their pyjamas and shoes. Due to their attire Captain Clare soon dismissed them back to the bar where general beauty therapy continued-talk about being committed!
