December 1st, 2008 · No Comments

Position 14.97,-27.95 at 08:32 GMT
1914 miles to go. ETA at 5 knots 04:22 17th Dec Local time.

Wind eased back a tad to ENE 4

Cruise liner Costa Romantica passed 2 miles astern in the middle of the night. You could see this one for miles as it lit up the scattered low clouds! It is on route for Espadarte which I presume is somewhere in Brazil from her course.

This what the doctor ordered. Pleasant temperatures, easy sea, and odd jobs like a squirt of silicone spray in wind pilot to stop a squeak. Still the occasional birds – storm petrels and shearwaters. Plenty of flying fish and fish showing on the echo sounder as well.
