Day one completed and 111nm covered, not bad to say most of the time we had very little breeze. We are now in a good position to catch the stronger SW breeze when it arrives, which should not be long as the wind has veered 60* in the last few hours and continues to do so. We are now doing 8kts directly towards Falmouth Yeeesss!
Its been a hot day on board and we need an all over wet-wipe already. Several pods of Dolphins have hurried passed us, never staying for long and a large white thing that looked like an over turned boat wallowing about 100m away with birds pecking at it.......
Supper will again be selected by Matt - Spaghetti Bolognaise - I knew I shouldn't have trusted someone who eats Peanut Butter and Strawberry jam rolls for lunch every day....We'll be back to Hot Chicken Curry tomorrow !
The breeze has veered another 20* and we are putting up the Spinnaker to start the charge home.....
