We are just coming to the end of our first full day
at sea . Everyone starting to get into the routine now. We are not
hearing so much of 'where are my sun glasses ? have you seen my hat ?' None of
us got much sleep last night so everyone a bit knackered today . Good days
sailing with the Spinnaker up for most of the day. We seem to have passed lots
of other yachts today. It's a bit early to tell how we are doing but we think we
are up with the front boats in our class . We hooked a nice fish this afternoon
but again it got away ,honest ! It was over a foot long and Mike fought with it
for a couple of minutes but we were travelling too fast to keep it on the hook ,
so the quest for the first fish continues.
The sun is about to go down and we are sitting down
to a nice Paella ! a nice red wine would be good but alas its water for us !. We
are on the fifth watch pattern now and seem to eventually to have it sorted.
Mike is craving chocolate and seems to look off into the distance every time the
word is mentioned. Skipper is teaching us all about Spinnaker handling and how
to hold a steady course.
All in all a successful first full day at sea and
were all still speaking to each other ( well I'm not speaking to Mike ,oh
and he's fallen out with Jason ) but apart from that were all
