Day after day of no wind pass and the day forecasted to have wind creeps closer. On the first day we were becalmed we had just 5 juvenile gulls begging for food around the boat (fat chance!). After 6 days the line of gulls stretched out as far as the eye could see. You can tell how slowly we are progressing as, embarassingly, the gulls paddle to keep up! We can't even fish ourselves as these birds try to take the bait.
Now desparately wishing for fair winds (please join in!)
Just going to check the forecast..........
