Going well still, wind up and down, but managing a steady 6 kts, wish we had a spinaker!!  Yesterday afternoon I was checking my eyelids for leaks when I heard a large bang, and then some flapping. Oh no, I thought we had blown another sail.
As I made my way out onto the deck I noticed that the flapping sound was from inside the boat, strange I thought. So as i was looking about I spotted a large, (1 kg) flying fish that had made a dive in through the open hatch in the toilet, just missed the toilet bowl, and was flapping about in the corridor. I naturally returned him to his environment, and he flew off unhurt!
