Bolero - Day 3
Bolero continues to romp along. We have had a rolly 24 hour downwind sail with winds up to 25 knots and a 2 metre swell. The sun has now begun to burn through the clouds and the sea is changing from a murky grey to a lovely shade of blue.
We lost count of the number of encounters with dolphins we saw yesterday afternoon, many of whom played in our bow wave for quite some time. We have not seen any so far today.
Our AIS is picking up all the shipping around us, fellow rally boats go into stealth mode from time to time, Blue Eyes has blinked, Kite’s done a runner, Grey Goose is still lost in flight and Blonde Moment has just reappeared.
The crew are quite happy with the nautical miles and food we are chomping through.
We have 200 miles to go.
