''Dolphins!'' Day 6
20 January 2011
We were in for a treat today with dolphins on our bow - last night they had made an appearance and I tried to wake Lochy to see them but to no avail. So, everyone happy today. We came tantalisingly close to another yacht that we had spoken to by radio on the first night who is a single handed sailor, but despite hearing him call us on the radio once, we then couldn't connect with him - we think there was a problem with his radio rather than ours which was such a shame as we haven't seen many other ships and to be within 2 miles of him in the middle of the ocean it would have been nice to have chatted. Of course we shot past him with our kite flying but waved as we blazed by!! Actually, winds are now really light so speed dropped right down again. We fluctuate between saying "At this speed we'll be in in 19 days" to "Maybe it will be more like 23 days" but either way that will be fine; we're all really enjoying the journey and Chloe has proposed a Pirate Day tomorrow. Shiver me timbers! Position: 22.08N 22.59W.
