My turn for the night watch. Took over the watch from Stuart. All quiet on board and no traffic about.

It is my daughter's 20th birthday and I wish her a happy birthday via the stars.

A flat calm and very little cloud. In the distance I spotted a cruise liner. Wonder where they are off to? A shooting star spotted about 0320, the Perseids shower is happening about now.

Still heading north, with 3 knots of true wind so the engine is off. Dan takes over and I head down to my bunk and the drone of the engine.
