Bolero - Land ho!
We are now flying the Spanish courtesy flag and Q flag and can see the coastline of Spain. We had hoped that sailing in Spanish waters would mean shorts and tee shirts……. Sadly these are hidden under our oilskins at the moment.
The frustrations of sailing: a cold damp night with a fading breeze. Yesterday’s sun has been replaced by numerous shades of grey which would put the Farrow and Ball paint chart to shame.
The highlight of the night was being joined by a pod of dolphins at 0230. Steve and Maz spent some time overnight trying to work out ship’s time as some of the electronic gadgets were showing UTC and some BST. It took a while to remember that wind up wrist watches gave the correct time!
This morning we saw pods of dolphins, a school of whales and two fishing boat and lots of sea mist.
We feel blessed to have had a fabulous passage across a benign Bay of Biscay.
Nick, Maz, Steve and Willy
