Passage from Ascension to Grenada S07:21:2 W019:48:6
Good steady Eddy day – wind between 12 – 15 knots then up a bit in the night – now around 20kts so doing a reasonable speed.
Matt a bit concerned as we didn’t make that much on Vulcan Spirit during the day yesterday – thankfully we made a few miles on them during the night! Caught up on a few ‘admin’ jobs which will continue today whilst the sea is ‘slight’ (although quite rolly at times). Must’ve gone through a nursery as there were lots of tiny flying fish on deck this morning. Wondering if the collective name changes for flying fish when they are out of the water – shoal in the water and flock when they’re flying? Maybe it’s a ‘shock’ of flying fish!
