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.

Bob Cat:

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.
