It occurred to us that the pleasant 6 hour sail we had after leaving La Libertad was the first time we had sailed with the wind forward of the beam since we left Palma, Majorca in September! However since then we have been motoring and it seems likely that we will have to motor the remaining 266 miles to the Galapagos.
Last night was peaceful with bright moonlight and flat seas. Four or five swallow-tailed gulls flew with us most of the night and we assume that they were hoping that our navigation and steaming lights would attract fish. We saw pilot whales again this morning but they must have cleaned out the fish in the area as we haven't had a strike today.
