We are now 300 miles away from our destination Cape Verde. The wind is more or less the same- 25 knots from north- east and we are doing around 6.7 knots of speed during the days and 5.5 during the nights.
This is almost 2 knots below what I excepted from the boat but it is nothing we can do about it. When it gets dark we change to our front sail only so that it gets a bit easier to sail- thats why we are loosing speed during the nights.
After 4 days on the sea we are now getting into a good routine and everyone gets a lot of sleep (including me). Max and I are the only one on the boat that is interested in fishing- we managed to loose four fishing lures already- how? I dont have a clue. What I do know is that we did not get any fish- so we suck basically.
Yesterday a couple of dolphins decided to put on an amazing show just in front of the boat. They jumped from wave to wave and they even did a couple of backflips just in front of us- pretty cool!
There are no boats out here at all- we have not seen anything for the last couple of days to be honest- just water (and a couple of dolphins)
Vera took her famous dolphin dump yesterday so she is doing fine. Rado is the guy who most of the times takes her for a walk round the boat,
Thats all for now-
