Monday 3rd December
Since our last log we have had a mixture of weather, none of which would usually be associated with an Atlantic crossing at this time of the year!
There has been plenty of wind though and we have been double reefed for 48hrs or more! We have taken a more northern route than most yachts and seem to have had less sunshine as a consequence. Pah! We have managed to clock up just over thirteen hundred miles in the first six days. However, we expect our progress to be slower over the next few days when the wind drops.
Wildlife sightings have been almost non-existent. Oli saw a pod of dolphins and Tosh sighted a whale. Apart from that, we've only seen a few birds and lots of flying fish (we've had two on the deck so far). We're being well catered for by Bryony who surpassed herself yesterday. Following a two course lunch of salmon baguettes and birthday cake, she served up a roast dinner followed by apple crumble in the evening. So much
for the diet.
Until next time: Gone fishing..........
