5 Oct, at sea, 43-38' N 021-43W 5 knots SW by DR, 0200 boat time

We had many patches of fog yesterday and some real sunlight, too.
A couple of whales spouts were sighted, but nothing more.

I'm now on the 4-8 watch, since we dogged the watches yesterday, with "curtailed" watches from 1600-1800 and 1800-2000. I have to change sleep patterns, and figure out caffeine and food patterns, too. We're going to stay on UK summer time until we get the the Azores, which means 0800 is still pretty dark.

We're still copying BBC R4 on 198 long wave, so I'm listening to the news now.
I'm just wondering what's happened with my Samoan friends. And Mercedes Sosa(sp?) is dead.

And I've been allowed to take a saw to my bunk to make it a bit more user-friendly. This boat is NOT set up for creature comforts, but we're starting to work on some of that. Hammock chirs that we can hang in the rigging or in the tweendecks.
