On the good side, the noon to noon daily run was 167.4 miles and at 16.10 local time this afternoon we clocked up 1,000 miles. So only 2,000 still to go!
Started fishing today, the first time since we left the UK, and, having put the hooks, lure and traces on, we rapidly came to the conclusion that it's easier to go to Sainsburys, having hooked most things on the boat before getting it into the water. Trailed the line for about 5 hours, but nothing. Our plastic pink squid came back on board unscathed, so we'll try again another day.
