Still we wait for the wind to blow long enough to take us around Adele Island, which has now achieved some significance with the crew. Quite a few are saying that everything will change once we round the island..the wind will blow and we'll make good headway once again. This morning we had a light NEly and, with the help of the flood tide, made a few miles to the South. Now, however, we drift NW in yet another calm. Oh well, tomorrow is another day and every windless day brings us closer to the next decent blow. There's no need to start the D sails (engines) for a few days yet. The painting continues with the chevron and Mercury twins getting a "birthday". And the cook, much to everyone's delight, used the last of the apples last night for an apple crumble. Superb!!!
