The new book is coming on really well. Even though I've yet to find out the true story about the guillotine blade it hasn't stopped me getting on with the plot. Pete 'the reef' has been home from Fiji where his boat 'Troutbridge' clouted a reef a while ago and he is now full of rebuilding plans. He popped in for a few days and my liver is slowly recovering.
Preparations for the Atlantic crossing are looking good, we even have 'Salila' polo shirts so we can go to all the ARC parties in uniform. The weather has turned cold at last and so getting out of here until May next year is looking more and more enticing. Oh and book sales are really good this month, I just hope they continue.
