to Fiji on E'eva

banana rice for breakfast, then outside to do the dishes.

It was a brisk morning with a good swell running and 35knots of wind. we had 3 reefs in the main sail and a tiny piece of Genoa out and despite this lack of sail we were still cruising along nicely at 6.5knts.

After a few days of feeling sorry for myself i decided to do some washing and have a shower, the pacific wasn't as warm as it could have been but a couple of bucket fulls over your head and most of your bits go numb anyway, a bit of Pascal magic lather in salt water soap and i'm as clean as a very clean thing.

And then you wouldn't be on a boat with a Swiss man with out a big pot of fondue.

As Pascal said, the same thing with someone prettier and beside a roaring fire would be perfect.
