Next Step - 12th March 2020
Overnight the wind has gradually got lighter and lighter, so when the sun had risen and it was a bit brighter, we put the cruising chute up to increase our speed over the ground. It was lovely sailing with clear skies, sun and a reasonable boat speed. In the late morning the wind continued getting lighter so our progress slowed. With the cruising chute up a bit more concentration was required at the wheel to keep the sail full at all times. We put out the fishing line again to see if we could get a fish. Unfortunately, we caught nothing, so it was back to tinned curry and rice for supper. It was a good days sailing in almost clear skies. We took down the cruising chute before it got dark, just in case the wind got up overnight.
