Crew member on GBR8338 With Alacrity
Day 4 from the WART household
Sorry for the radio silence. We have more technology onboard than you can
shake a stick at and access to mobile connections I've never seen on my
phone i.e LTE, GPRS, 2G and 3G but nothing would send!?
The conditions onboard can only be described as moist - welcome to the
Celtic Sea. Last night saw our first headsail change and a reef in 25knots
of breeze. Strangely when the new watch came on the offer of a sausage
sandwich was vigorously turned down! I can report that chocolate bars at
7am was not favoured but we have been conducting our own taste tests on
cereal bars.. Conclusion even boys eat them!
I do need to report a strange phenomenon onboard we have grown men who are
now apparently out of sync but who really don't want to visit the heads.
I'm anticipating a queue for said heads once we are around the rock.
Ohh must stop here needed on deck...........
Right I'm back after a quick visit to the mast to drop out the reef and
we can see Ireland and Fastnet Rock! WARTs still murmuring about there
being no Guiness onboard!
Much excitement a few hours ago when we saw Dolphins. One leapt out just
in front of the bow.
Joke of the day "When is a Fastnet boat not a Fastnet boat? When it's
aground" (credit to
