Life on the ocean waves-
Those on night watch had a lie in, with their teddies. (Cap’n Greg’s little joke!).
This meant a late breakfast, 11.00am today. We were treated to egg, bacon (from our Serano ham) and beans up on deck, running down wind in 20knots of wind and glorious sunshine.
At 0400 hrs we spotted two sailing yachts – our first contact, since leaving Tenerife. One we identified as yacht Alalunga a 97footer, and spoke on the radio, she was sailing for Martinique. The other was further away, we think was Yacht Kayporo.
It seems we don’t have to try and catch fish – we found a flying fish in our galley which had come in through an open hatch, landing in the sink. We also had our first sighting of dolphins (we counted 3) yesterday afternoon, while we were carrying out a sail change.
It looks like it’s going to be similar to yesterday, an easterly wind, but, with sunshine.
