Flying Fish Weather
Thu 15 Oct 2009 14:43
Course: South sou' west, Speed 4.8 knots
Wind: North, gentle breeze
Weather: Partly cloudy, warm
Day's Run: 120
Another good day's run, the breeze remains steady and true, I haven't touched a sheet or the self-steering for over two days now. Still get the occasional slat from the mainsail but as we get a bit further south I expect the wind will freshen and hopefully we will post some even better daily runs.
I was right about old Las Casas, dreadful stuff, I don't think I am going to finish this one.
I found another flying fish on deck for Bob Cat this afternoon. Definitely getting into flying fish territory now, with flying fish taking off in all directions as Sylph spooks them into flight.
All is well.
Another one! These fish with wings are a bit on the small side but who am I to complain about manna from heaven. Time for a . . Zzzzzzz.
