Watch from 00:00 - 04:00. The weather was quite wet and windy during this time and there was some lighting seen somewhere a long way off or so I am told as I was on mess duty today and was in bed at the time! The weather seems to have settled and the sun has been shining most of the day now. A lot of people were out on deck during the morning but most went below in the afternoon to sleep. Sails have been taken in and we are now using engines as the winds have changed too much. On watch again now (16:00 - 18:00) windy but dry and sunny. Permanent crew did a fire drill, two got into full fire equipment and it was treated as if it was a real fire. Not too sure exactly where we are now but there is a lot of water.
Simon - Forward starboard watch.
