Alone on a wide wide sea

In the past 10 days we have seen precisely NO ships, yachts, boats......anything. It certainly is a wide wide sea. Oh, I'm sorry, yesterday, we did see a shark about the size of a dolphin - we thought it was a dolphn but then it did the whole wavy thing with its tail sticking out of the water and Lochy and Mia spotted the discrepancy. And then a flip flop. Hopefully the two weren't linked. Apart from that, it's only been the odd sea bird. Incredible really.
Poor Mark has been in bed for the past 48 hours now with a fever and sweating like a ..well, a sweaty thing. He was able to do a watch last night which helped and he's definitely a little better this morning. We worked out that we might be arriving after sunset (quelle surprise!) and so we have put one engine on just to keep our speed up with the hope that we might just squeeze in before it gets dark. 80 miles left to go. At least it's not the weekend - you can't check in at the weekend and you're not supposed to leave the boat until customs have visited. At least we don't have loads of fresh fruit and veg for them to confiscate! Curr Position: 21.03S 173.55W
