Wednesday 23rd August.
Much less to report now no land based activities.  Just logged 157 miles for the 24hr -could be a new OR record. After our slow start the wind has been steady 12 -14 knots gradually backing  more west to allow us to ease off the wind a touch. The sea is still slight  although the motion less comfortable now the wind has picked up. Yesterday was sunny all day but still cool in the wind. This morning overcast but the wind feels a little warmer.  No sign now of our storm petrel outriders that stayed with us yesterday. All systems functioning O.K. so far -good volts from sun and wind. Entertainment is to alternate between reading and starting a carving project. Diana alternates between reading, Suduko and knitting. I picked up Leon Uris' Trinity in a book swap in Puerto Villamil- very interesting Irish history.
I forgot to mention yesterdays sighting before we left harbour of a shark chasing a fish past the boat and across the bay- amazing speed and constant depth as the fin stayed above the surface. The fish was leaping desperately out of the water but the chase ended in a swirl of activity near the rocks as the shark won the race.
