Wind SW 4kts
COG 270
We completely ran out of wind last night, so have been motor sailing for the
past 12 hours. We will probably just make Cartagena in Spain on the fuel we
have left...200 miles. We'll refuel and then continue to Gib.
We had to stop the boat after 12 hours anyway to check the engine and refuel with our reserve diesel. We took the opportunity to have a swim and wash our hair. The water here is a mind boggling 2690 meters deep. I hope the photos that John took of us swimming with the extremely large container ships in the background turns out ok.
