Friday 17 November

Sat message to relay :

Just passed Ilha Trinidade 30nm to the west of the rock, first waypoint ticked off. Next one a position about 70nm north of Tristan da Cunha 1323nm away. All ok on board, sea a bit messy as we are only around 60-70° off the wind as we try and run our eastings down. Saw our first whale of the trip this morning about 500m off and it looked like it might have been a humpback.

1 sighting in over 4000mm of sailing…
What a sad indictment of human greed and stupidity..
