Annie - Log Day 5
24 November 2011
Very little wind for the last 12 hours so we haven't been getting anywhere fast! Running the engine in gear now for an hour or so and hoping to find some more wind as we head further south -west. Thanks to the ever helpful Jim MacDonald of Mactra, who fitted a spare part for us in Las Palmas, the water maker is churning away and producing maybe 4 litres of water for us this hour and it's a chance to charge the computer. The calm sea overnight has allowed everybody to get a better rest so that's a good thing. Saw two ships and a sailing yacht today and had a visit from another, smaller pod, of dolphins who came by very slowly to match our speed.
