We now have a bit of wind today but not really more than 6 knots so still slow progress. We have the parasailor up which gets the best out of the wind but still slow, around 3 knots. We lost one of the lines overboard which go stuck round the prop but it wasn't turning so was not all snarled up. Larry once more plunged in to the deep cool Atlantic waters to resume his role as shark bait. He very quickly retrieved the line and we got going once more. We still have a lot of south in our course as we need to get to the 12s and ultimately our medium term goal is still 12N 40W. Larry also fixed the fishing reel so fishing can once more resume. So far the tally is just 2 Mahi Mahis of which one went back and we ate the other.
