Noon to Noon report on the 10th April 12
We have kept the cruising shoot up for the last 24 hours and the wind has been fairly steady at between 6 to 11 knots from astern.
We have had a fairly slow 24 hours hence the low distance travelled.
The sea state is now smooth to moderate with a swell running of about 1.50 m.
Just our old favourites, just flying fish and some sea birds, but not much else.
I think I am destined never to catch a fish again. STILL NO FISH!!
