Well we finally caught a fish . Yesterday afternoon
about an hour before tea time we landed a 7 Lb Tuna. I don't know what that Kiwi
bloke who was on the boat before me was up to for the previous three weeks ?
There is a photo of our catch below just to prove it ( No its not a plastic one
we bought in the Azores ) We had nice fried tuna with garlic and tomato salsa
for tea and we have fresh tuna pasta for tea tonight.
Still going well ,about 7-8 Knots direct towards
Tarifa and the entrance to the Mediterranean. If we keep going at this rate we
should be in Sotogrande by Friday night in time for dinner.We have started to
see a few more boats now mainly heading up from Africa to Europe. I have the 9PM
till 11PM and the 5AM till 7AM shifts which is great because I get to see the
sunset and sunrise. The sunrise was very spectacular this morning , the sky a
blaze of red and yellow. We are all enjoying the sail but I think Claire
,Malcolm and Andy are looking forward to getting ashore and getting back home .
They've been away for over three weeks now and had some rough weather, I've just
joined in on the champagne leg (or should I say the tea and chocolate biscuit
leg ? ) Hope the weather in the UK has cheered up a bit I
gather its been a bit grim ?
Bye for now
