Tuesday quite warm about 28c,and sunny we now have big long waves and an easterly
wind of 17-20knots
and where going like a train- which is good apart from the noise about every
4th wave is out if sync. with the rest
and it bangs into the boat at tremendous force not much sleep last night so
all the crew are sleeping at the moment
I'm on whale watch one ARC yacht ploughed into one yesterday luckily not
much damage was done
So a quiet day really where all reading books and playing cards to pass the
time, each evening last week an ARC yacht
ran a pub quiz on SSB radio but the yachts seem spread out now and reception
can be poor.
