Title: WAVES

Well it's Wednesday morning and through the night the wind rose to 25knts, F6 on the Richter scale, nothing the Baba isn't comfortable with, however the Atlantic rollers are coming in on our starboard quarter, often looking about 20ft high and rolling the boat a long way over.
Kathy snapped this one of a shark, either asleep or dead, but just floating in the water.
Harriet is steering at the moment, doing a grand job. We are making a good 5knts avg under reefed main alone and are currently just 20 miles off the coast near Cabo mondago, some 90 miles north of Lisbon.
Currently we expect to reach Lagos on Friday Morning
Cheers, P
