Day 8


Not a lot to report really. Pleasant day with winds around 15 knots most of the day. Stayed poled out on port gybe all day.  Wind switched to SE during the night but managed not to have to gybe until 8 this morning.  Sun out early this morning so quite hot already. 


Finished off our December update for the website so hoping we can get wifi in St Helena to upload it.


Matt had a sighting of a USB (unidentified sea beast) – something big leaping out of the sea.  Apart from that very quiet – not even the odd bird!  A few more flying fish on deck this morning and a squid stuck to the windscreen (must’ve been a jet propelled one!)


He have 165nm to go now, and the winds are fair. So we hope to be anchored in St Helena around local noon tomorrow (Thursday).



Date and Time: 27 January 12.00
