Large fishing boat came within half a mile at dusk, very courteous, he called us up telling to hold our course.

Yesterday afternoon we had a double hit of Dorado/Mahi mahi/dolphin fish 4.5 and 5.5kg, beautiful bright yellow in colour and lovely eating fish, the tuna does not come close. We let Brian get in the way as we landed the second one so that he could film and He got some footage of the fish being landed on the go pro. I have heard that dorado mate for life so we probably caught ma and pop out for a nice Sunday lunch, boy I bet he got an earful when it became clear about the mixup - Sunday supper on Moxie. Not sure when I'll be allowed to put the lure back in, now have about 10kg of fresh fish in fridge, freezer already full of chicken, beef, lamb and swordfish and has not opened since we left.

Crystal clear night sky pitch back peppered with pin pricks, there's a comet somewhere but I don't know where to look.

Turned west last night after weather download, looks to be great sunbathing and swimming weather next couple of days if we continue much south so trying to skirt over top for a couple of days to avoid becalming ourselves.

Thanks John at AO HQ for fleet position and rugby updates, now can you chase up Oracle about returning my foils please.
