This time, before I went on deck to the front, I told Officer-in-Charge, who told me to bring a radio with me (he is also, after all, Safety-Officer and this is a good compromise).
Flying fish with their iridescent wings, a single gull with its watchful eyes and the great swelling Ocean accompanied me over the Equator.
The Equator! ..that widest part of the planet! ..did I feel something?
