• Crossed paths and spoke on the VHF with a tugboat towing 2 barges measuring 500 meters long at 2:00 am. Successfully avoided collision.

• Hydrogenerator working well.
• Patrice is making water of the finest quality on a daily basis (thanks to the de-salinator). However, he hasn’t figured out how to turn it into wine yet…
Delight’ of the day: Captain Patrice for giving me an extra half hour sleep before waking me up for my midnight watch.
