Title: Day 4 - Flying fish 26:51.99N 18:11.91W

At the 7am changeover of watch Dolphins were spotted at the bow. Amazing.
Lots of them. speckled tummies, squeaky noises, and definitely watching us.

Flocks (?) of flying fish are a constant feature, skittering over the waves
away from our bow, and often ploughing into a wave with a little plop.


Observation - Life, the universe and everything

One thing there is plenty of on this passage is time. This, taken with 5
people who don't know each other very well, has led to lots of chat, about
our experience of life and perhaps even an element of 'whats it all about?'.
Thus far I am not sure we have come up with the answer, but we are all very
different, and like the united nations will doubtless benefit from sharing
our different perspectives. Giles, for example, seems to have been heavily
influenced by the 70s TV series Kung Fu.

On a more concrete take on our place in the universe, our attempts to master
the night sky still have some way to go, and it was a cruel but insightful
remark that our efforts thus far could have come from chapter one of the
Puffin book of astronomy
