First of all, Robin has pointed out we have 58 days to complete our voyage, not 56, so you can see why he is skipper and I am crew.
Less than four weeks to go and the pressure is on. The liferaft has been serviced, the new bunk cushions are ready to be picked up and the first supplies have been ordered. I can't believe how quickly it has come round.
Soon I've got to see the doctor to sort out our meds for the trip.
The magnitude of the whole thing is just setting in.
