Sir Robin’s Route du Rhum blog - Thursday 13th

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Gybing quite often during the night in a fruitless chase after a better wind angle. Soon after the sun rose, the check of the horizon showed a sail bearing South West probably about two to three miles away. It's not one of the Rhum class I think, so a Class 40 or a cruiser.

The first flying fish found on deck this morning. Only about 40mm's long so far too small to cook.

The sun is hotter today, the first time I have really felt its heat. Need to start building up protection.

A few chores to do, like topping up the fuel tank, and then I shall try and get some rest for a while.
