At Sea: Overcast and hot

October 17th, 2008 · No Comments

No sun today yet. Can see rain on the radar. It is 26’C below, 23’C on deck.

Feels like the start of the adventure with lots of things very different to the UK sailing. Sea is an inky blue and very clear. No wildlife, No fishing boats. (Well nearly none, did see a 2 mile long net this morning and one bird last night.) Tea shirts OK for night watch. Dawn and dusk very fast.

Had full moonlit nights for the whole trip but I guess you know that though.

ETA Porto Santo still 06:00 Saturday.

34.086,-15.361 with NW force 2 at 13:30 today.
