Strong following winds with 203m waves.Sunny hot.
We have all been helming today as batteries a little low after a slower rolly night.Still a good moon and the seawas electirified by plankton.Plenty of flying fish but only one made it onboard.
Now 50nm off the ABC islands which we cannot see.Should pass Punya Galinastomorrow night and then into the Gulf of Panama.
Spoke to the skipper of a yankie tanker last night who kindly altered course to avoid sinking us.
