One of the adventurous birds that flew so far to sea, and found our boat.

So the 4th crew member showed up after all. No doubt he's very skilled at determining wind direction. :) This picture is hilarious!

Plane checking us out
Tue May 13 1:55:02 EDT 2008, 48 34.9'N:005 17.2'W

Not sure who is flying the plane, they just came close for a look, and George got a picture.

We are west of France, sailing in light winds and seas.

Wind Vane Taking a Rest
Mon May 12 11:07:34 EDT 2008, Departing L'Aber Wrac'h

Downwind is tough for the wind vane (wind regulator, in French) so we hand-steer, SOG: 5kts.

Working with the Fisherman
Mon May 12 10:53:03 EDT 2008, Departing L'Aber Wrac'h

First time setting fisherman this way (without old roller furling rig).

Light winds are expected for the rest of week, so it will probably take longer than two weeks to get to the Azores.

George's IPhone works really well.

just read all the blog. Issuma is beautiful and I am glad things are going as planned. A special greeting from Snæbjört Sif and the rest of us in Iceland.
Every Boatyard Needs a Horse
Sun May 11 14:45:02 EDT 2008, 48 35.98'N:004 33.69'W

This boatyard actually has two horses. The horses are kept (partly) to keep the grass short, which they do a good job of by eating grass most of the day.

We have left this boatyard, and are further down in the harbor of L'Aber Wrac'h, where there is enough water that we can leave at any stage of tide.
