Overnight the wind has been very light and variable with a brief rain shower in the early morning. We had breakfast and as always seems to be the case, started planning for the next evening meal
! The Hydrovane aka Dobby was set to work steering the boat in the light wind. Thankfully, the morning rig check did not reveal any rig parts lying on the deck.
A number of yachts appear to have seen whales and dolphins, but we have seen none so far only a few distant sea birds. Most of the yachts that have been on the horizon for the last few days have disappeared. Lunchtime and David made us some ham and avocado wraps which were very tasty. Because of the lack of wind for the wind generator and not enough sun for the solar panels we have resorted to running the engine to top up the batteries. It looks like the wind will disappear completely tonight so we may be motoring through the water rather than out of gear shortly
we will see. Jeremy is making a Thai chicken curry for supper.
Until next time!
