The equator party organisers are busy putting together our ‘sins’ that as Pollywogs have to be declared to Neptune before we are permitted to become Shellbacks. Our bow has been covered in Champagne as well as the bottle being offered to Neptune- he accepted graciously as the rest of us drooled in (desperate) enthusiastic anticipation of ours this evening.
