Domini - Log 4 - half way there

We’ve had a great day’s sail, averaging nearly eight knots. A couple of records were hit today. 183 miles in 24 hours - a personal best for Team Domini. And not only that. We saw 18 knots on the speedometer! OK - that’s with a knot or so of current and surfing down a wave and lasted for about five seconds, but even so, it’s pretty impressive stuff.

Last night was quite hard work. We seemed to have squall after squall, with lulls in between, so we were doing the Sailors’ Hokey Coley all through the night.

You pull your foresail in
Your foresail out
Your foresail in
And you watch it flog about
You do the Hokey Cokey
Then you run aground
That’s what it’s all about.

Oooaah the Hokey Cokey…etc

You pull your mainsail in,
Your mainsail out….and so on, till you either run out of sails or you’re seasick.

Pulling the sail in when a squall is approaching needs both of us, so neither of us got a very good night’s sleep. But the good news is the squalls seem to be dying down a bit, so we’re hoping that tonight will be a bit more relaxed.
