With twenty sails set she must look like a phantom ship from a distance, clipping along 5 knots with force 2 on the beau fort scale. Down wind sailin,g now for 5 days in a row, yes these are the trade winds. Today, Saturday, is the ships general cleaning day. This morning the ship is turned inside out and got a scrub. Maintenance is going on in the rigging and on deck. The people off watch are not in their bunks, but read a book on deck and enjoy some smooth music. This afternoon Joel caught our 4th Dorado fish, which he named Dora. She had been swimming around the ship for halve a day and became his pet. Another present from Neptune, Dora had 4 fishes in her stomach. Tomorrow Sunday is a rest day. We plan to have a beachparty on deck, with a barbecue. Dorado's make a good steak!

All is well!
Captain Arjen van der Veen
