Mapping of Blue at the Mizzen Complete

Blue at the Mizzen is finished.

I have developed symptoms of a cold and, as a result, quarantined myself inside our very small and already quarantined house. I am confident it is just a cold and not something more sinister but marvel at the tenacity of this particular rhinovirus that managed to circumvent the frequent handwashing, alcohol wipes and mask wearing to make it into my upper respiratory tract.

Thanks to this extra layer of enforced isolation I was able to finish this, the twentieth and last complete volume in Patrick O'Brian's wonderful series, in just 6 days. A new record, though perhaps one soon to be broken with my upcoming map of The, sadly truncated, Final Unfinished Voyage of Jack Aubrey.
