Course: South sou' east Speed: 2 knots
Wind: North, light air .
Weather: sunny, warm
Day's Run: 93 miles
It has been slow going but considering the light airs for the last 23 hours since sailing from Cascais old Sylph has posted quite a respectable run of 93 miles.
We are coming up to Cabo de S. Vincent, should round it some time later this afternoon if we don't lose the wind altogether. I still haven't made up my mind where next. For now we plug along at a slow and steady couple of knots.
Dipping into a little Shakespeare to pass the time. Shakespeare sure dreamed up one bad dude in Richard III. It can be a bit hard to follow for a failed high school English student (that is moi - I did even worse in French), but worth the effort. I wonder if Shakespeare's often disparaging protrayal of English royalty had any influence in bringing about the English Civil War?
All is well.
And skipper Bob isn't doing any better understanding the plainest and simplest Catese that I can meow, and volume certainly seems to make little difference.
A fish, a fish, my catdom for a fish.
I dare do all that may become a cat, who dares more, is none.
Really, it's enough to wear an old feliine out . . . Zzzzzzzz.
