Wednesday 5th December (part 2)
Correction to the earlier comment on Tuesday 4th December; The whales were approximately 25 ft long, not 25m. Must be all the sun and excitement.....
Sailed right into the centre of a huge storm, which besides shrivelling and shrinking the helmsmen, caused us to steer a lot further north than anticipated. Slow, uncomfortable progress made today.
Thursday 6th December
After all the bad weather of yesterday we made the most of glorious sunshine and calm seas, enjoying swimming off the back deck (where we discovered that a boat that's travelling at 0.0 kts actually moves fairly quickly!!??), had two separate pods of dolphins swimming alongside us for quite a while and ended up with a spot of Oli boom dunking. A good day all round.
