Day 66 - Chatting to Simon Prior

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Conditions light at present although still a strong swell which is stopping Flying Ferkins going West. Winds South Westerley. Andrew & Guy presently sitting on the para anchor holding position. They will head West when they can. Boys have called and spoken to Simon Prior onboard the¬†Woodvale support vessel Desiderata. By all accounts they enjoyed speaking to each other.¬†More excitement onboard Flying Ferkins as they saw a ship last night. The ship was 4 miles away. The AIS (Automatic Identification System) proximity alarm worked well to notify them along with their ’see me’ active radar reflector. They had a brief radio conversation with the boat and then watched the boat disappear into the distance.

Distance made West:

Tue 49nm

Wed 27nm
