Dominique’s feeling much better and the sea’s are kicking it – like you wouldn’t believe!


Windy Day as we came out into Five Fathom bank – uncomfortable heading and lots of little bumps in the way – a leaking hatch soaking me with a big wave – harsh wake up from deep sleep, backed up head, etc.

At dusk, barely light, we steamed into 20-30 small fishing boats with no lights – freaky –scary, followed by a night full of fishing nets, tugs with monster barges and friendly ships…. 


It’s strange how perspective and sense of direction can be altered by the night. Ship’s lighting is consistent (fishing boat’s not) – yet motion is not always clear.
