Frustrating day.Slowly heading south to reach trades which should be 4 deg south.Mixture of calms interspersed with spells of wind.Spent most of the day keeping sailing occasionally using engine-Fortunately she sails well.
Saw a huge shark alongside this morning just as I was thinking of a swim.Have grown goose barnacles on the stern.
Sun just setting and it looks like another downpour.Hopefully better wind tomorrow.
