As you may have gathered from the posts on Z+, I have returned safely to Hobart from my voyage. I head out again on Friday. Voyaging’s a good deal of fun, but a lot of work. Everything is a big production. Getting in/out of bed? Big production: Carefully spider across the dry store (compensating for roll, of course). Eating dinner? Big production: feeding 3 watches means food is served on a strict schedule and carefully rationed. Dropping/weighing anchor? Big production: the anchor needs to be carefully controlled by adding and removing lines, the chain needs to be hosed clean when raising it and someone needs to climb onto it to get it back on deck:

Some other highlights, in bullet form:

It’s going to be pretty busy for the next few weeks, but hopefully I’ll get time to continue writing.
