We continue to make good speed through the Southern Ocean, although we have been running into a head wind since yesterday evening making things on board uncomfortable and slowing us down a little. Once again I had another terrible sleep last night. We could be in for some larger swell overnight so let’s see what happens.

I was up early this morning and I got a lot completed. I answered all my emails and completed and sent off my annual report. I wrote out a new CV, down loaded six new movies, finished cleaning up some files on my computer and did a bit more photo sorting.

Outside is foggy and miserable as we have now crossed the Antarctic convergence zone. After lunch I went up onto the bridge to have a look around and I couldn’t see anything, so I went back to my room and spent the rest of the day sorting out my photos. I am about 95% complete now with my photos and I just have to sort out my AAD files and I’m pretty organized. I still have my music files to finish sorting though. After all day sitting behind the computer I am going to treat myself to one of the new movies I copied today.
