WE were welcomed to the Azores with dolphins and last night Dolphins waved us good bye.
The wind blows from the south west and Gertie has made good speed on her first day.
Saw a whale early this morning, this my only cofirmed sighting, there was a rumor of one sun bathing on the bridge deck a few days ago.
Ric has joined, he has to put on a fine effort as replaces 3 others.
