Approaching the equator one has to traverse the doldrums which can be a vast span where you have to motorsail sometimes for days on end, but if you are lucky enough you may only motor for a day or two. We hit the doldrums yesterday and decided it was a good day, as the weather and seas were calm, to do a boat clean up as we hadn't done it since departing from Fortaleza.

So after a hearty early breakfast of jungle oats with honey, we started carrying out the chores of cleaning inside and then moving to the outside. We completed the tedious job of polishing all the stainless steel which was showing signs of rust spots. A little later we noticed that the skies were darkening on our stern, which our land based weather guru had predicted, and after finishing the stainless steel polishing went about filling the diesel tanks as they were about half full. No sooner had we completed the diesel issue when it started to rain which gave us a good reason to retire inside for some lunch.

After lunch the rain was bucketing down and we thought it a good time to have a fresh water shower as this is a luxury not available on the trip as we don't have a water maker. What a sight, everyone soaped up naked on the foredeck enjoying a lovely cleansing shower! We sparingly use our fresh water for cooking and drinking, even the dishes are washed in sea water. With the yacht being so spick and span, we now went about collecting rain water to fill our tanks. The rain came down so heavily that within 30 minutes our water tanks were filled to the brim with beautiful clean rain water.
