Back in our foul weather clothes and deck boots as we race across towards the UK playing cat and mouse with a small cold front giving us plenty of wind. Overnight we are speeding along at over 7 knots under double reefed mainsail, double reefed genoa and the mizzen,
Claire spotted the blows of a couple of whales, she thought at first that it was waterspouts! The blows were surprisingly high and straight up so we suspect they might be blue whales.
We have seen lots of dolphins on this trip. They rush towards us in pods of over twenty plus but do not stop to put on a show other than racing across our bow.......we wonder where they are going in such a hurry.
