we’re still having big problems with xantic and getting messages through and i’m beyond tearing out my hair. i cannot correlate what has gone out, or to whom (the satcom software has a bizarre filing system that seems to move messages around in the list and i just can’t sit down and make lists of reference numbers and correlate them across three screens – physically impossible out here.) and i have to send duplicate messages all over the place in the hope that someone will get something. if it all seems a bit staccato, my apologies, i’m working under rather trying circs. and we’re now well and truly inside the gale but moving towards se cape. two weeks today if we can maintain 6 knots. wooohooo.
