Another fast 24 hrs. The wind increased in the evening yesterday for a bumpy ride in the night. Now back to 14kn slightly more east of north.
Nice to see petrels again and this morning a group of 4 gannets. Otherwise the only thing to see (apart from sea) is plastic. We didn't see plastic in the open ocean before this trip but now if you look out for 10 minutes you invariably spot a bottle or other piece of plastic passing by. Multiply that up by the area of the oceans and what was alarming locally in Indonesia is pretty terrifying globally.
