This report was about to go off when we had a visit. A fishing boat spied us
and decided to take a look. We were happily going along under cruising chute
but we all took our sails in and put engines on. Although we were motoring
the fishing boat was not to be deterred and chased after us with what looked
like a small army of people on board. It was a little intimidating but they
were waving fish and wanted cigarettes in exchange. Eventually they gave up
and went away.

Our day returned to it's normal peace and quiet and I could write this to
say that nothing had changed much in our small corner of the world.

In spite of the light winds we have covered 122 miles in the last 24 hours
and almost exactly 1000 miles in total.
