For the office
Didn’t manage to radio last night / A lot of strain on the machine / On us as well / As soon as it calms a little I’ll start again / Next time we should have a phone / It takes too much time / A phone????? / What’s the world coming to /
Air 2°C, water 2°C / No risk of falling asleep at the helm / Eyes tired from looking at the radar / Tension / Stress not to mention fear /
The crew is otherwise holding up / I can’t help feeling very moved when I think back to the one on Lyonnaise, miserable with exhaustion / Oilskins torn / Faces swollen with cold / With fatigue / And today, in the same context, I’m suddenly proud of what we five have done and am happy.
