Flotsam: goods lost in shipwreck and found floating.
Sail Training, Victualling, Hygiene and Stuff may be compared to flotsam at times.
But! Hey! This is a serious site
In case anyone thought the day-to-day condition of Pentargon is a coincidence ................
" The day after race finish, the whole crew turned to and tackled the boat cleaning, and all the small jobs that needed doing... A lot of lessons have been learnt on the boat-victualling front, and we hope to get a better balance of food, veg, fruit etc .... for instance, take only a few day's worth of choccies, as it will melt [in] warmer climates.
[Boat] is now clean again, and looks great.Tracey and Silvia have been 'mapping out' where all the food is stowed under the various floor boards.The sails have all been washed down, cleaned and checked for damage. "
Note: 'floor boards' on boats are correctly known as "sole plates" and are easily removable to gain access to the bilges. SW
