More easy sailing with wind force 4 aft of the beam. Wind a little stronger this morning so no spinnaker required as we were already doing 7 to 8 knots. Now this afternoon the wind has swung more astern and lightened. Lovely starry night, cloudy and cool this morning then the sun came out.
Crew buried in books. Milo's chilli was great last night. The basil plants got a haircut at lunch with Insalata Caprese on the menu. A few dolphins came by this morning, but otherwise an unexciting day. Yesterday evening a curious whale raised its head above the waves just a few yards away to starboard to regard us quizzically as we passed.
