  • Spinnaker hoisted nice fine morning. Attempted to use movie camera when spinnaker up but it is jammed & will not work.
  • Spent 1.5 hours scrubbing foredeck with ajax. Continued to clean port berth storage under the bunks dumping even more cans. Did a count of powdered milk – ok for rest of voyage. Won’t starve but will be very light on in 7 months from now.
