We stood three hour watches through the night, icy cold with a completely clear starlit sky, as Jupiter, Mars and Saturn made their way from horizon to horizon, dipping behind Torquay. At 6 am the sun rose exactly behind Portland Bill astern of us, and we had much needed hot porridge to warm us up.
