Slooow motion 6840 10859

Time slows down in the last few k's of a marathon - everything on a large scale, like the whale's tail, seems to move so slowly. We're 90 miles from Cambridge Bay or about 20 hours of normal time. Fickle wind but in the right direction, mostly. We have to hand steer all the way because the electric autopilot cant cope with what the chart calls a magnetic anomaly. Plus, the variation here is about 40 degrees. One consequence is that these blogs don't happen - they tend to get written while on watch with one or other of the autopilots in charge.

Anyway, we are crawling towards CB in relative time.
