Endeavour III - Endeavour III - Day 3

Day 3, murder at sea!

Another glorious day, and a more restful night had by all it seems. Everyone being in good spirits this morning!

We have been having some great south easterly winds pushing us in the right direction. To those following us on the tracker thinking, ‘but you are going to far south!?’, I say, check out the weather forecast, we want to keep these lovely winds.

Alas starlink has ceased to work! No more internet, and no more YB tracking info! Today we covered 187 miles, and trust we are doing well keeping up with the fleet. The morning was spent trying out different sail plans, and eventually settling on a full code O, giving us an average 8.2kns throughout the day.

Just before dinner we changed to a poled out gib, and full main, to goose wing for the night. Dinner was amazing by the way a butternut squash chilli, well done Imara! Was such a shame she then killed me in Cluedo with a bar of chocolate in the cockpit! Very easy one I think, I love chocolate, and spend most of my waking time in the cockpit!

One thing not going so well, is our plan to diminish Atlantic fish stocks! We found the line striped off one of the reals, so thinking it was a monster that’d been eating all that fish! Luckily there are plenty of fish in the sea!
