Off Portugal

Mon 25 Aug 2008 14:06
As I write this we are hammering along at over 8.5 knots under spinnaker.  The wind is now steady in the North, if we can just keep charging the batterries enough we are beginning to see how we might make it to Agadir.
Slowly but not always reliably the weather is getting hotter and at the moment it is bright and sunny with a big sea down which we are surfing.  Yesterday we caught our first fish about 3.5 lb Tunaesque and fantastic eating so a victory for persistence and lost fishing gear.
If we can keep going at this sort of rate we should clear the bottom of Portugal tomorrow.
