Well what an amazing ocean, yesterday we were visited by the largest pod of Dolphins we have ever seen, there must have been over 100 of them, this coupled with Pilot whales and flying fish, is making this trip even more worthwhile, let alone the amazing sunrises and sunsets and stars, so many stars! Zero light pollution, stunning, just stunning!
As we prepare for the final leg of our 1st stage from Las Palmas to Mindelo, many lessons have been learnt that will put us in great stead for the atlantic crossing, sail configurations, when to put them up and more importantly when to take them down, ease up on satellite time! its like buying shares in the company! watch your sweet rations, they go so quickly on nightshift, but one of the most important lessons learnt in particular to our boat, is don’t slosh down the cockpit when someone is sleeping below with the inner porthole open!
