we turned the engine off yesterday at 1230 and have been under sail ever since. we just about kept going over night - down to 2.5kts at times but now doing around 5 again. we've just completed our 100th mile. 'Horatio', our hydrovane wind-steering has been doing all the work.
we had a quiet night - a few ships but none of the frantic fishing activity that we experienced along the coast.
this morning is cloudy and is hinting at rain. i've seen a small pod of dolphins and some flying fish. i'd almost forgotten the joy of seeing dolphins.
