Thursday March 14th 2013

Latitude: 9,2,6S
Longitude: 169,51,12W
Course: 21 degrees
Speed: 20.8 knots
Status: Day 68 – at sea
Notes: It is a bright, sunny day with relatively calm seas. Even at 7.30am the temperature was 27C, 81F but that is not surprising, as we are almost on the equator itself! Tonight Arcadia crosses the International Dateline again, going back in time so we will live the 14th March all over again. This aligns us with Hawaii and means we will have no further date adjustments to make during the journey back to Southampton, just the appropriate time zone changes – one hour every fifteen degrees of longitude. Also, this morning as I watched the news, a new Pope was elected – Pope Francis.
