It is now 2 days since we last saw another boat, a cargo ship headed to southern Brazil.
Only a few small flying fish on deck this morning. The sea is a bit choppy and we’ve had a few splashes on deck – enough to wash away the bodies. I caught a fish yesterday afternoon but it got away. The line is out again this morning and I will keep a closer eye on it.
The wind continues at about 15 knots from directly behind. We furled the genoa a little on the first couple of days but the full genoa and staysail, without a mainsail, are now a perfect setup for our downwind flight. The forecast is for a light patch tomorrow followed by good winds until we get close to de Noronha.
I hope your day is as pleasant as ours.
Dave and Merel.
