Finally after six days at sea we were able to set sail and turn off the engine. So far perfect sailing weather let’s hope it lasts until the Azores! News from the deck was the sighting of a flight of hard working geese headed south and a number of playful dolphins encouraging Nellie on. The only downside is two blocked heads on the gentlemen’s starboard side – expect a few hopping on feet moments until resolved….
At this stage of the voyage we are 5000 meters from the sea bottom so plenty of room between us and Davy Jones locker. Next on the agenda is a talk on the weather by third mate Tamsin – expect a full house.
FP watch Chris, David, Frankie, Arthur, George, Phillipa, Jon and Paul
