At last we get what we asked for - a lovely sunny day, puffy white trade wind clouds and a landed wahoo!
There's not quite enough wind - 10-15 knots, 6-7 knots boat speed. Still hopeful we'll get in Wednesday pm in daylight.
We enjoy our fish with fried potatoes and salad - McPhail's favourite meal. We're all pretty exhausted now - the watches and helming are taking their toll and we're all looking forward to getting there. Three of the crew have come down with colds so Gordon is on constant contamination alert - no drinking out of bottles!
