At 10am we reached the half way point exactly 8 days after setting out from Mindelo.   Under sunny skies and with sparkling seas, we offered a libation to Neptune from the foredeck with due ceremony.   The tragedy of yesterday was the fishing!   The score is now Fish 5 – James 0.   A question for you – what is the most boring, frustrating and costly sport after golf?   James reckons it’s fishing!    It won’t be long before we can stop fishing due to lack of lures!!   We now have lighter winds and there has been evidence of the gentle Atlantic roll but we are still experiencing choppy seas and gusts which is preventing us from putting up the cruising chute or parasailor.   Whoever described this trip as a ‘milk run’ needs their head examining!   Otherwise, all well on Ocean Rainbow.
