Evenings are when the Rainbow Warrior is in full glory. The late sun washes over the deck, the sea calms down and everyone wanders outside after dinner to behold the beauty of it all. Tonight was especially amazing because we were sailing! Which might not sound that unusual for a ship, (and I certainly don’t want to shatter anyone’s illusions about how the Rainbow Warrior gets around) but it takes just the right winds to go full sail with no engine running. We’ve had all four sails up all day, engines off, and it has been beautiful.
Waiata practice (C) GREENPEACE / Sharomov
Also this evening: waiata practice in the mess (“lounge and/or dining area” for the uninitiated), in time for our arrival in Gisborne tomorrow. Could just be the fresh sea air, but I think we actually sounded okay! Images of a good old sing along are attached (you can see i've got the wrong song and am singing "Run Rabbit").
