Rain again all night, (ARC forcasters call them local showers - right on),
problems with the pole, and then this morning whale ho! At first great
delight, then increasing concern as it came closer and closer, swimming
right alongside,and then diving under the boat. We deployed the age old
wives tale of bleach down the loo, then boat cleaner and then fog horn in
the water, and we think after two hours it might have gone: It was
definately tooo amorous for us, and much too close.
Well despite the weather we are all well, and looking forward to some
sunshine, and "relaxed" sailing for the final leg; only 760 miles to go!
