Yesterday was overcast, but it cleared overnight and the stars came out. With no moon they all shone very brightly. Venus had us fooled for a few minutes as it wasn't where we thought it should be. It's the brightest object in the morning sky, so it had to be Venus and then we realised that last time we saw it we were heading north west towards the Caribbean. Now we're tying to head north east, so it's shifted from being behind to being on the starboard beam. It's new moon time now, so no moon for the next few days. We have a few clouds today, but it's been mostly sunny and with a slight, beautiful sea it's a lovely sailing day (apart from going in the wrong direction!).
