What a glorious day. We woke to a calm sea and got going soon after breakfast. We've got 6 sails up, blue sky, blue sea (honest) and a good watch team. We've begun to learn the ropes. It's true what they say about the food - it's great. Emily, Cook's assistant is stood beside me! Sue is in control at the helm. Most of us went up aloft yesterday evening, exhilarating isn't an adequate word.
