This is the furthest north we will get till we are sailing up the South Atlantic next year. From here we sail south westerly to the Cape of Good Hope!
But as dawn broke we were welcomed by seven or eight small dolphins who spent maybe two hours with us. A perfect welcome to a new country.
I then woke the crew with a cooked breakfast and the promise of a full sail change!  After breakfast they set about dismantling the pole system but all work stopped halfway through as a whale was sighted!!!  We had a dozen large dolphins playing round the bow too. Then maybe seven small whales joined the party. We were all mesmerised for an hour. What a huge privilege to witness.
