I can already say that this blog will not be quite as long. I had a cold so I spent most of my day in bed.
But I can at least say that the food was good, for lunch it was some kind of soup and salmon for dinner. Since I weren't on deck I can only guess that the others trimmed the sails, and other maintenance duties to keep her look as good as she can despite her age. But I can probably speak for almost all of us in babord that every day closer Portsmouth is much appreciated.
