We sailed 130 miles today which is the best 24 hour total so far. Katy can do more but we need different conditions. Still the weed is plaguing the fi.shing but it does seem to be noticeably thinner so maybe tomorrow it could be good for fishing.

We're sailing past a lot of pink plastic tiaras. I can only suspect they have come from a container that has toppled off a ship and disgorged its cargo. Here's an interesting fact for you - each year around 10000 containers fall off ships in to the sea. Most are consigned to the ocean floor but a few still hang around waiting for an unsuspecting yacht to smash in to it much like the Robert Redford film 'All is Lost'.

Its Katy's 39th birthday on Thursday so we're trying to think up some fun party activities but it is slightly limited in an 8.7m x 3.28m boat.
