We set off for Spain, across Biscay on Saturday morning in bright sunshine but not a lot of wind. Once away from land there is not much to see although we have seen lots of Dolphins just before dawn this morning - they appeared when Adam was in bed and I was steering, they stayed with the boat for about 20 minutes leaping alongside although it was too dark to get any pictures or see more than shapes jumping in the waves. Adam has seen another Whale about 40 miles off France - only about 20 yards off the boat, I turned around in time only to see all the ripples in the water so not happy Adam has seen two wWhales and I have seen none.
First night in Biscay was fine - the visibility isn't great and it is very dark with no moon - but at least there is no land to run into!
