On Passage to Graciosa, 12th October 2005
We're about sixty miles out of Madeira, surrounded by sea. Chris is having a well earned snooze, and it's my watch.  Doing the usual: fighting the hydrovane, watching out for ships, and watching the dawn come in.  No sign of wakie wakies from the girls yet.  Position:  31.50' N  and 16.15' W.   Speed 5-6knots.  Depth ?? probably between two and three kilometres!, and it keeps giving the depth sounder hiccoughs, as it keeps saying 'shallow alarm'.
