A couple of hours after yesterday's blog post the wind started to pick up and by late evening we were flying along in 15-20 knots of wind. It was very comfortable because the sea had not yet picked up after the calm, but by the time I got up this morning the sea was very lively and the wind blowing 20-23 knots. It has abated to a little below 20 now, but with the lumpy seas, this blog will be short!
All well on board. Thanks Uncle D for the message, much appreciated and I will answer when it's a little more comfortable to do so!
Decks swimming with squid, which we will not venture out to clear at the moment, and they are now joined by flying fish. Time for a fish stew!
