The weather turned out to be a little bit more lumpy than we had hoped to see today and there have been a number of interesting rolls during the course of the afternoon.  However the wind has now backed and is due to ease somewhat,  hopefully tomorrow will be a much calmer day as it will make life much easier for all on board.

Due to the weather I have not been out and about,  spending my time trying to stay in my chair in the Radio Room,  and so have little to report.

Look forward earlier this afternoon,  with some blue sky and sunshine to be seen.

Looking aft just before dinner this evening and a bit more overcast and the sea still slightly lumpy.
