Max And Saskia Call False Alarm
Sat on night watch duty in the Crow’s Nest at around
2am, Saskia and Max were discussing today's events and wondering
why the PR girl had been singled-out.

In her opinion, someone had started a rumour that she was
going to win the series, which is not strictly true. After

It would serve them right if Admiral Big Beard severely penalised
the whole group for the pair having compromised the
crew’s sleep and safety by crying wolf.
When all the commotion had died down, the Captain ordered
Mutley-laughing Sam to join Craig on lookout, but within half
an hour Sam was relieved by a guilt-ridden Roberto.
"That was a fraud, that flag story," said the perceptive
former military man, before calling Science to the Crow’s
Nest to give him advice on how to address the crew in the
And as if that wasn’t enough disrespect for one evening,
the 32-year-old then asked his Cap’n to get him a cup
of coffee, to which the correct response was, "Captain
can’t do anything like that".
Roberto, you need to take a look at the metaphoric rulebook
