We had a somewhat stomry night with strong winds and a significant downpour of rain and were left with a bumpy sea and brisk winds for most of the night. Today the sun has returned and we are trundling along at about 5.5 knots towards Porto Santo. On the wildlife front, apart from the ubiquitous Sheerwaters, we saw another turtle doggedly making its way towards the mainland. We also came across what looked like a pot marker normally seen close to land some 200 miles north of Madeira - maybe it had gotten tired of being a local pot marker and wanted to try its luck on the international scene - who knows? More in due course.
