We dropped the mainsail at midnight when a squall went through. It
took an inordinate amount of time to do so as first there was this
little problem and then another. After that it was a clear calm
night. Hannah saw a turtle, Roger and I saw a ship which helped us
practising with the radar and Curtis watched the sun rise. Yesterday,
a dolphin had obliged him by jumping out of the water as the sun
rose: today he had to be content with just the sunrise.
When everybody was up and about we put up the angel again and she has
carried us across the sea. We went quite close to another ship - the
Rachel B, some sort of gas tanker. It is hot and we are all sleepy
after the busy day yesterday. Curtis and I paddled in buckets of
seawater. The sea temperature is 22.5C.
A calm starry night.
