We had been hoping that we might be able to do this 2900 mile leg in the same number of days as it took to cross the Atlantic...and at this stage it looks as though we will. We have less than 200 miles to go and we are all looking forward to the landfall tomorrow.
Yesterday's yellow-fin tuna provided us with a stunning sashimi lunch washed down with a very nice Agentinian white wine. Tony and Mike have orders for at least 2 more tuna and a mahimahi before we arrive.
The French authorities have very strict quarantine regulations so we must consume or dispose of all fruit and vegetables and eggs before we arrive. Tomorrow's breakfast will be a memorable feast.
