Day four, approachhing Madagascar
Thu 15 Aug 2019 08:10
We are struggling with light winds, not what we expected at all! Constant sail changes trying to make the most of the conditions are keeping us on our toes. Mind I could do without the 03:30 call to help.
We have seen several enormous cargo ships. They are on a similar track to us, the biggest so far, 365 metres long, it looked about two centimetres long but it was six miles away!
On a previous passage we discussed the possibility that the closest other human beings to us were above in the Space Station....not the case now!
