of the eighth day on board
9th May, 1999
a.m. Captain Nicola
turns the bow towards the land due to a strong sirocco wind
and the violent storm.
The testing phase has been concluded, not even a shark's shadow,
anyhow we are satisfied.
On the other hand, Recchi says that we if we still keep missing
the sharks we are allowed to become discouraged only after the
10th of July, but there's still time from now until then!
We are definitely ready to start the real expedition which will
leave (depending on weather conditions) on Saturday the 15th
Today we finalise the details of this complex task.
