Friday 19th May - Apology to John Swift

It has been drawn to my attention that the entry describing our adventure on Leg 5 could be construed to imply that I absolve myself of any blame for the route finding errors. That wasn't entirely my intention and I would be prepared to conceed that this may not be entirely apparent from a first reading of the text.

It may be that it is not entirely apparent from subsequent readings either and so, to set the record straight I would admit (under some duress - like the need for a navigator on Leg 5) that John offered the correct bearing from a spot that we both agreed was correct. The fact that neither of us had a clue where we were, apart from in very general terms, is probably of some relevance here but John was confident and I don't believe you can ask more from a navigator than confidence, because if you are confident you can get lost really quickly rather spending hours over it.
