We had favourable winds throughout last night, but also very large seas coming from the stern quarter that resulted in a very rolling motion, so not much sleep was to be had. The weather is warm, with some cloud. We are still making reasonable progress, though we are travelling east at a lower latitude than is normal to miss out the worst of the storms tracking across to the north of us.
Early this morning a number of tuna were seen swimming through the wavetops, pursued by a pod of dolphins. It could have been an opportunity to catch a tuna, but the sea state would have made it quite perilous on the aft deck when trying to get one on board, so we have not depoyed the fishing gear today.
The forecast is for the wind to go light for the next 24 hours before building again.
Distance to go :-1289 miles
