The James Clark Ross continues to make good progress north with the Canary Islands our next land to sight,  some 375 miles ahead of us.  The weather has continued to be lovely,  with the air temperature now having dropped to a very comfortable 20C and the sun has been out throughout the day.

This reminds me of the Heath Robinson drawings,  which you have to be a certain age to recall (Google it if you can't remember or live outside of the UK).   This is taken in the Prep Lab and is part of the underway sea water sampling.  It runs whenever the ship is underway,  with the water taken in via an inlet on the hull.

The JCR has a small gym,  with a sauna,  and I happened to be passing through this morning.  For those that are keen on keeping fit or just want some extra exercise in addition to Richard's circuit training,  this is the place to go.

The most important maintenance carried out this trip!  The barbecue,  which we have had for some thirteen years,  had been playing up and this afternoon it was stripped down,  given a good clean and put back together.  Now fully operational once again it will be put to use on Monday evening when there will be another barbecue on the Aft Deck.
