Crew here again; Just as we realised that the half way stage could soon be
ticked off, some weather came in disrupting the trades that gave us our best
day so far yesterday - 159 miles compared to 100 or so at the start,
possibly due to the influence of the Azores high in mid Atlantic.
Undeterred, we have the first of three bottles of champers in the fridge
ready for 1/2 way. The others are one for the finish leaving one for some
other milestone. Suggestions on a postcard to Graptolite, Atlantic.
After the hectic events of yesterday, today was 'steady'. No fish, boats, or
tsunami - yet. However Lori "allegedly" saw some flying fish shortly after
coming up after a nap. The fishing tackle has been modified with a shiny
spinner about the size of yesterday's fish; "We may need a bigger boat"
As we have moved time zones by two hours, the watch system is being shifted
to match daylight times. You're on the edge of your seats with this blog
Skipper had reservations about Dinner; "Real men don't eat Quiche" but is
helping to make it anyway.
