Firstly, as a lifelong birdwatcher for the last 50 years plus, seeing my first albatross is rather like (was it the poet Keats?): "Then felt I like some watcher of the skies when a new planet swims into his ken"
Secondly, being on the night watch last night under full(ish) sail, with a decent wind and with a full moon lighting the sea and glistening through the rigging was one of the most memorable experiences of my life.
And finally, to be asked by Krista at 4.00 in the morning whether "anyone was interested in helping to set the outer jib" is about the most charming order I have ever received!
don't shoot the albatross !
