Well I'm back on board and needless to say everything is now becoming more organised and settled. I don't know what they were doing without me ? all those storms, broaches and beating into 40 knots of wind, what was all that about ? Anyway all sorted now, flat seas, 25knots of North easterly wind blowing us gently over the waves at 8 knots, sorted.
We left Sao Miguel in the Azores following a last meal of grilled tuna chips and salad ,perfect. We had a nice cup of tea and a sit down yesterday afternoon with Becca's lovely chocolate chip cookies.( Thanks Becca !) I suspect that there is more chocolate hidden on board somewhere but haven't managed to find it yet. Tying to sort the fishing out but I think we're going too fast ! ( that's today's excuse anyway ) I think the only chance we've got is if we come across the Usain Bolt of the Tuna world .
We are all settling into life at sea, the watches are two hours on your own which is very civilized .We are all up and about during the day reading chatting and listening to music, apart from Andy who is applying filler to various dents and scratches on Kantara . Nice sunny day yesterday , sun is up now and it looks like another scorcher. Hope weather has cheered up in UK. Bye for now . Joe
