We are now roughly on the same latitude as Bermuda and the wind is increasing as forecast as we approach a low pressure system. This is good news as we intend on gybing very soon and and latching on to the bottom of this depression with the wind still behind us. After this low passes through there is another hot on its heels and together they should propel us toward Europe at a fairly good speed.
We saw another whale, I think a pilot whale leaping approx. 100 metres from the boat this morning. We all went ahhh, and the off watch went to bed.
