Day 15: Shellbacks

00* 51.2' South
129* 54.9' West

The crew of CAPAZ: Brad, PJ, Bryce, Austin and Tim have all become shellbacks. At 0300 Zulu, the boat passed over the Equator (0* Latitude) and was visited by King Neptune. Everyone is short some hair and has been fortified with bilge water, worms off the keel and a shot of grog shared with Neptune.
Besides this exciting news, we are in good wind that looks as if it may hold us to our destination. For, as the song says, " . . . . on this heading lie the Marquesas."
