Day 3 in the big Lord Nelson: strife has struck as the sea sickness sets in. We have found out after trial and error that ginger nut biscuits are good to relieve you of symptoms. Yesterday evening we were treated to a family of dolphins including some young ones. At midday we were again greeted by some dolphins and stood in awe as they gave us a performance.
We used a motion called “2-6 heave” to set the sails ready for sailing as we passed Land’s End. Every day we go on one or two watches to look out for other boats and these last four hours. Today we have experienced some very choppy waves and strong winds so are all tucked up in our oil skins.
