    Hang on. Where's the video cam satellite footage. I was expecting Matt crouching in the cabin with his head crushed against a plexi-dome wailing about how difficult it was.
    All we're getting is some winging about fag lighters running out. At the pace they're going, by the time they runout, it'll be illegal to smoke on board anyway.

    Ah, that's more like it. Now they'll catch up a bit.

    Yep, spotted them doing 9 knots earlier today.

    EDIT: Just checked on GoogleMojomo and they're doing 10 knots now.

    Monday 7th May

    35deg 08 N, 44deg 39W. Para has done me again - handed over at the end of his watch with 15-20 knots of wind and romping along at 8-9knots. An hour into my watch the wind has died to under 5knots.

    Good speeds of up to 9 knots last night means around 800 miles to go and with (pessimistically) 600litres of fuel we means no more fuel worries - we can motor the whole way and still have 100litres left. So I've stuck the engine on to make 6-7 knots.

    The radar is still playing mind games - last night it decided to turn the screen off every ten minutes or so. After a few slightly heartstopping moments it turns itself back on at full brightness, and then adjusts back to lower nighttime brightness. Maybe it's an automatic routine designed to keep people on their toes whilst on night watch? If so, it's very effective.
    Can't
    argue really I suppose - a blank screen was an almost perfect representsation of the pitch black out there, although not quite what I would hope from a radar system. I decided to ignore its on/off scare tactics and it gave up after an hour.

    This morning the radar is doing what it does best - displaying any especially dense clouds on the horizon. Interesting, but not desperately useful. Perhaps it's installed upside down? However, I tried switching the "rain" setting to "off" - and the rain stopped and the sun has come out! So that seems quite an excellent feature, regardless of any other shortcomings.

    Ljs' quiz answers - comments and answers by LJS himself.

    Some people are born to set quiz questions, others have it delegated to them by the skipper. The idea came from comments about the boat's play list ("Ha!
    Betcha don't know who sang this"). One or two questions were deemed too easy by the 'committee' so upgraded. I mean what sort of nerd knows that 'Little Arrows' was sung by Leapy Lee? Er, oh, that was me again.

    Anyway, the answers given below are undisputably correct at 35 degrees north, 45 degrees west. However, considering the curvature of the earth, and in relation to the rectilinear nature of truth, not to mention the fact that we can't check anything, there is the outside chance of there being some slight deviation or anomaly in your part of the planet. Ahem...

    Anyway here goes:

    Who sang "Sweet Home Alabama?" Lynrynd Skynrynd

    What sized engine did Godley and Cream have? 10 cc

    Who sang "Little Arrows"? Leapy Lee

    Which actress was Paul Simon once married to? Carrie Fisher (or cohabited
    with)

    Which heavy metal rock group signed for Atlantic Records? Trick question.
    Probably several knew we were talking about Led Zep (also missing an a) - so that's the answer - even if they were a bit bluesy as well

    Who sang "Hey girl, don't bother me"? The Tams

    Which band had an album called "Dummy"? Portishead

    If you're about to go to work by Tube - what would have on your toast for breakfast? (answer is a song and band which sang it) Going Underground, The Jam

    What does B.A.D. stand for, pop/rock-wise? Big Audio Dynamite

    Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd died recently- what UK city was he living in?
    Cambridge. Almost certainly. I think.
