We wake to a brand new day under partly cloudy skies and with fresher winds. We are surrounded by white horses and have had visits from dolphin and flying fish.We are sailing in company with an unidentified yacht just 500 meteres ahead as we shift along at a decent 6.5 to 7 knots.The wind has increased the roll which makes any task a challenge. I managed to knock up a lasagne with sauted peppers, vienese swirls and custard last night. we are eating well and are in good spirits. Poppa I am pleased to hear your scotch reserves are safe. I have chosen to go TT thoughout the journey so will welcome a wee dram on my return. We  arecompeteing as to who will have the best looking beard at the end of the trip. love to you all Nick.
