Its certainly getting a lot livelier out here with a big swell kicking in which I'm lead to believe will only get worse tomorrow, great. We can hardly stand up as it is without being launched in to some very hard and painful innard of the boat. I actually make coffee on my knees whilst strapped in as there is no no other way.

Anyway whilst having said coffee today I was delighted to spot a bird following us for some time. I don't know what they are called but they are white, torpedo shaped with a very thin tail. We've seen quite a few of them. After 10 minutes it flew purposely over to the boat and I thought maybe he'd come to say hello, sing a song but how wrong I was, he deliberately crapped on me. He then flew off back to his original course. He actually made a point of diverting to do this. I know they say nature is cruel but this was more evil and vindictive. I'm pretty sure he really enjoyed the experience and far more than I did. The little *@$£er.

Another 127 mile day
