2 clueless day skippers with Patience

DAY 73- Sines

26 August 2015
Today having thought we might do an overnight sail, we settled for a 55 mile day trip instead. The main reason being the abundance of lobster pots along the coast that if unseen will wrap themselves around your prop soon as look at you.
We sailed alongside Delphinus for part of the way and made a pact to keep our eyes out for Whales as we passed through the deeper water. Lily and her mum thought they saw one but We weren't so lucky. That said , we spotted a bait ball of fish where dolphins were feeding. We headed to it and at one point were surrounded by over 40 dolphins, darting around the boat. It was amazing - the largest pod we had ever seen. Then a few hours later Ricky spotted some splashing in front of Delphinus which turned out to be more dolphins. These were the biggest we had ever seen.Six were doing synchronised swimming at the bow for a few minutes before they sped off . It was a really relaxing sail with the sun shining and almost flat sea.

Tomorrow we head for the corner - almost at the gateway to the med . It's 76 miles so early night tonight . (We average at 5 miles an hour !!) but before then we have been invited to tea on Delphinus with Jane, Paul and Lily. So I'd best go and get ready.
