Another good morning sail with a force 5 blowing from the North East. This soon petered away to a breeze however, and we wafted along further south under a blue sunny sky. The seas were still big, but getting better.
It seems there is a fishing contest going on amongst the fleet. Somebody called us on VHF to tell us that they had caught 5 mahi-mahi fish! I replied that I had got a tuna, but had already canned it for storage and did not know how big it was!!?
I think I heard one side of a small drama going on, on VHF. A Spanish aircraft was liaising it seems with another competitor in the ARC, concerning a small boat that was adrift, and had asked the ARC boat to stand on for 12 hours while help arrived.......what this was I don't know, but I'll find out during tonight's SSB chat I guess.
Spent most of the day trying to get my Hydrovane self steering to work - but to no avail. Maybe tomorrow....?
