Penny's Fish Pie

29 May 2022 | 34 48'N:12 14'W, 220 miles SW of Cape St Vincent, Portugal
Last night fish pie was on the menu, but this was not just ordinary fish pie as there were certain essential ingredients which the girls would know about whilst the men just assume, namely a quantity of prawns, capers and L&P sauce to give it that added flavour. But is it the making of the white sauce at sea which makes up a serious challenge for the average sous chef. Thanks to some recent instruction from Penny, which included a reminder on those essential ingredients, Chris just about survived the test and comments from Richie like "knocking the ball out of the court" improved morale and made for a memorable evening.

We are now under engine in a flat sea. We had enjoyed some wonderful sailing last evening with the Skippers favourite sail, the Code Zero giving us 7-8 knots - Zephyr is so wonderful under these conditions - but by midnight the wind gods had deserted us and we were under engine again, this time with low revs to conserve fuel.

We have just finished breakfast, the Skipper's scrambled egg was faultless - I looked for egg whites but found none - whilst the croissants where a real treat. The forecast is for some wind later, the sun is shining and all systems are working on board.

Happy days.


After note. The Skipper has done his sums and decided we can opt for higher revs for the time being. He is also considering putting out the lines, which fills me with dread as fish are never ever caught when I am on board.
