For the first time in 21 days, the crew woke up from. a deep sleep at anchor. A familiar 7am breakfast and a preempted a full day of Boat Appreciation BA. Down in the salon we cleaned everything from the bilges to the ceiling. Angie and Jess cleaned all the cabinets while Sam, Danar and Val scrubbed below benches. I took to the dishes, bleaching everything we touched or eat with. . In the cabins Shona cracked the whip and ensured everyones bunks and cubbies where the cleanest they have been yet. While the headmaster cleaned the heads(bathrooms)., Max Emily and Sam entertained them selves with vacuuming their hair to make funky hair styles like punks.
On deck , Henry and Robbie deep cleaned the propane locker while Zack attacked the lazarette. There was was a massive effort from everyone to get the deck looking shiny and spotless.Sam and Val , on on the other hand , got a surprise cool down while scrubbing the hull by falling in the water from the dinghy.We mustered for a picnic lunch, eating all the leftovers and a lot of nuts and pringel’s. Pringel’s in nutela was the favourite of Val our resident sweet tooth.
That night we had passage debrief , talking about all the positive things we achieved on passage the last 3 weeks and all we hope to achieve in the next one. At squeeze we gave our appreciation and what we are most excited for in the Seyshells. Answers ranged from coming back to the boat with a new appreciation for “home” , Exploring and hiking the gorgeous landscape around us and most importantly eating snacks.
