The watch mileage competition hots up

Gawd, what have I done? The mood on the boat has changed. The crew have become fixated by the bottle of Heidsieck Cordon Bleu I waved about and are doing everything they can to generate the biggest mileage. There were mutterings of "s'easy - we'll just sail off the wind" and various attempts at sabotaging the other crew. On a recent spinnaker drop/jib hoist, it seemed like the last watch had danced around the maypole with the halyards and I've attached a photo of the latest incident above.

That said, our performance over the last 24 hours has been fantastic!
