Speed and Spies
Tue 2 Dec 2008 09:07
At last real winds and real speeds. Ben gets us going at 10.5 kts over the ground as sunset approaches, Chris and Andrew are more interested in the sunset.
Crew partake of chilli concarne in daylight, another NIck creation. This sets us up the evening watch mileage competition. Ben takes the early lead with 25 which is matched by Jack and Matt in thee arly morning. Matt, Jack, Nick and Ben celebrate.
On the 3-6 am watch Ben slips to a mere 22 miles as we need to take action to avoid a spy ship trailing blue flashing buoys and zig zagging across our path.
Fishing progressng, Saturday prepared the lines, Sunday put them out and monday got two bites as we went through a smal shoal. Today, Tuesday, must be our lucky day!
