It was a moonless night, and stars sparkled in the spots of the sky the clouds were not covering.
Venus was shining brightest, making a reflection on the sea like a substitute moon.
What yesterday had in favorable winds, today took away. We flew our gennaker all night but as the sun rose, it was stored away and the engine was turned on.
It is still going as I write these lines, gently lulled by the long waves of the calm ocean.
We had lunch floating on a silver sea, observing the different cloud formations around us, hoping to find the one that will bring us wind.
In the afternoon we saw a whale and Marco managed to get a picture of it. Blurry evidence of two paths that crossed briefly.
