Avventura - Bermuda - Azores : Day 10

39:07.877N 39:03.463W alle 22:00 (23:00 UTC) del 27 maggio 2023.
Coming next, a short synopsis of the day, from the daily blog.
- An enormous 300 meters tanker was coming straight at us this morning. When questioned, a friendly voice assured us that his ship would not, in fact, destroy us completely.
- More astronomical navigation made by future golden globe race contender Alessandro. His observations of the sun with the sextant give a rather precise estimated position.
- A private spectacle of whale jumps, getting high into the air and falling down with a splash on their backs.
- The gennaker halyard decided to not hold the gennaker anymore, letting it fall down in the water. The quick reaction from everyone was needed to pull it on board and haul it back up with another halyard.
- More whales, passing left and right peacefully. Recently, we have seen a big number of them, around 10 per day. The dolphins are also present in great numbers on the daily, sometimes even competing with the whales for our attention.
