Five thousand and sixty five miles. As of today thats how far I’ve come in sixty six days on board.  Given our mode of transport it definitely feels as if that’s how long it’s been.  We’re at one hundred and seventy two degrees, in the morning we passed the opening into a large bay where the town of Pevek is.  That was where we might stop to refuel if needed, luckily that did not prove necessary. In order to catch up with the eleven hour time difference we’ve altered the clocks.  Technically everyone is still doing the exact same thing at the exact same time but according to the log I’m now on watch from twelve till four.  We’ve had the staysail up today and have been going quickly enough despite the frankly horrible sea state.  If we keep going as we are we’ll be half way round by tomorrow, that is definitely something to give us hope.  I’ll write to you once we reach 180 degrees, bye
