India: Solo across the Atlantic

Rowing solo across the atlantic, Bhavik writes “Cleaning the bilge pump and the space under the bilge board is always a bit of a treasure hunt, turning up wrappers, paper, nuts, bolts, screws, bits of plastic, hair and dropped food. Finally, storing the sea anchor away and clearing the last debris of flying fish wings and about 3 small fish that had slithered under the ropes. All in all, the deck is once looking much more civilized.”
