Our position is...

 

     27 degrees 50 minutes North, 16 degrees 59 minutes West. We are going eight knots under sail right now but probably due to a venturi effect from the Canary Islands. We have averaged about 6 1/2 knots today and are on a course of 267 degrees true. This morning we left Santa Cruz, Tenerife. Due to the land effects we have had wind, from 5-30 knots, on the port and starboard beam and all points in between crossing the bow but, right now, the winds are 20-30 knots off the starboard quarter. It has been clear all day and is 75.7 degrees down below. Right now the seas are a bit rough and wishy washy but most of today the seas have been decent.

     Today we passed through a bunch of dolphins that joined us on the bow for a brief time; this afternoon I caught a, I don't exaggerate my catches, five foot wahoo who gave a great fight running hard, pulling hard, swimming towards the boat, and diving under the boat; and, after catching the wahoo, passed two pods of pilot whales, swimming in the opposite direction as us, about five minutes apart.     

 

Sincerely,

Robby
