Swimmer Watch again

With only a week to go before we sail away from Benin, Swimmer Watch has begun again. Crew take it in turn to do highly visible patrols of the open decks in order to deter swimmers from becoming stowaways, and since I'm going through a phase of insomnia I have volunteered for the 10pm to midnight slot every night until we sail. And it's just amazing how hot it still is at midnight! Fortunately there are virtually no swimmers in Benin (compared to Liberia) - I haven't seen even one since we got here in February.Olly
