I have learnt that along with inconsistent winds come short tempers of the crew. We all were a little testy this morning as we took turns attempting to balance out the sails and set Mr. Says (the self steering device) to keep us on a good course and good speed. Fortunately, after a few patience testing hours, the wind has steadied up, which of course means we are all a little cheerier. It is still over cast, chilly and damp, which I have also noticed has effected my mood. It’s amazing how 18 days of being at the mercy of the winds and weather can determine our moods and brings so much more in touch with nature … Even if that means a few bad moods here and there. Nothing a nap can’t fix.
