... las Palmas has been cancelled. Excuse is an overheating bearing again !!! Still it's a nice bright day and quite pleasant in the " Crows Nest " most of the tables in use though. Captain made an announcement this evening. He had already announced a late arrival in Madeira. It seems a draft shaft bearing is overheating limiting our speed to 14 knots.
