Watching the dolphins

Watching the dolphins

In the grey ocean beside the boat up pops a dolphin for air. The dolphin takes a breath and ducks down under the water again. You can see them under the water. Spotted dolphins screaming away at you. Yesterday and this morning at sun rise they spent several hour’s entertaining us. Some of them had pink bellies, I guess they are pregnant? Lots of little ones showing off and jumping around the boat. It is times like this that I treasure at sea. If you cant go fast then enjoy the scenery.
Yesterday was warm and the first day we were in shorts. It has been great to escape the layers of clothing. It is so much easier to do things now we dont have 5 layers on. Today is over cast and grey. It is still lovely and warm. We are just trying to keep concise 2 moving under the clouds. It is gusty and tricky. We have big debates about which sail to have up, sail trim and were the stack should be. IMGA0067It has been difficult to get some rest with the slamming of the sails. We continue to try and rest and eat. I have been eating a lot but my food bag still feels full so maybe I should try to eat more.
While we still struggle with the high pressure we continue to squeeze every knot out of Concise 2. It is very frustrating watching the other boats pick up speed and sail away but we still have some 3500nm to go until the finish in Brazil. So we are not giving up.
