04.25 - Winds NE force 3/4. Seas are very rolly and only have the main up. We have a very bright moon and zillions of stars even though it’s a bit cloudy. Later in the morning when it became light we saw a large school of dolphins. Put the fishing rod out later and had 2 bites but they got away. Later found a rather crispy squid on the deck. Tried to use it as bait for the illusive tuna to no avail.
Wind is behind us at around 10 to 12 knots. Foxglove have caught us up but they are not having fun with the rolly seas. Sinead is not well with a cold so Pat is doing most of the watches. It’s bit tough for the both of them.
We’ve started using the generator instead of the engine now as the batteries are dying after about an hour even when we charge them for an hour.
