This is our second day at sea, we are now 200nm from land and heading North East. We have seen 2 turtles and some dolphins and the man overboard exercise was completed yesterday – Fred the mannequin was saved from the sea! Winds are now force 3 Southerly  so we will set sails this afternoon.

We went aloft to cast off the gaskets on in preparation. We are well fed and watered so hopefully full of strength for heaving and sweating later on!
