Timshel - Reunion to South Africa Day 2


We got a little wind and sailed for a couple of hours in the afternoon yesterday, then it went away. We managed some effective motorsailing overnight too but so far this morning it has been calm with less than 5 knots from behind. Madrigal (Farr 50) is now quite close, they must have sailed more overnight. Everyone reported in at the morning SSB roll call, and nobody has much wind, but Influencer (a racy new Dufour 56) has managed to sail all the way from the harbour. Steve saw a whale (he said) then there were big dolphins playing all round the boat for a while. Misto also reported whales. We ran the watermaker and are just chugging on - where is the wind??
