Amazing weather we woke up to, and an incredible sunrise – all of a sudden it actually feels like we are getting closer to the Caribbean. People are sunbathing on deck, the seas are calm. Wind Force is down to 1 or 2, Dave is busy making a sourdough, and to take advantage of this Rohan and I produced a smorgasbord of delicious food for lunch; plates of salads, olive tapenade, freshly made hummus with crudities, plates of antipasti and cheese, and we are still carving up the Jamon, such a feast. Another Atlantic swim followed, this time we all went in for a dip. It was EXHILARATING! We have some really great photos of this memorable experience and celebrated with a rum cocktail at sunset on the foredeck. Unforgettable night skies, millions of stars, the milky way is so clear. Louise, Adam and Paul tested out the brightness of their headtorches in a lumens competition and happened to see a couple of green turtles swimming by, in amongst the Sargasso seaweed which floats by in huge clumps.
