Andrea and I have just finished another day of watches. Just before dark, we crossed the contour onto Hamilton Bank which is 200 meters deep instead of 2km like the Labrador Sea. As we crossed it, I saw two dolphins apparently flying. There are still 3 meter waves out here and they were jumping out of the top of the waves, leaving them in mid air over the troughs. Crazy things.

We've covered 230 miles in 24 hours, all under sail so that's pretty incredible. We're all knackered, though, and fed up of being shaken about all the time. Can't wait to get to a harbour, probably tomorrow night.
