We are back to spotting and avoiding shipping which has an annoying habit of wanting to go exactly where we are heading and generally being a nuisance. We were buzzed by a very large yacht which was on passage to Las Palmas earlier in the afternoon. She seemed intent on coming close enough to say hi - and preventing us from making a planned gybe for about 2 hours…..Ben was convinced that is was a mate that he and Alex met with Flying Fish who is apparently on a large yacht also heading across the Atlantic. Sadly, this turned out not to be the case - they were just in the way.
