We’ve had our first night at sea and all’s well. A supper of Shepherd’s Pie, courtesy of David went down a treat. We are already out of sight of any land and only one sailing vessel was spotted during night hours, way out west on the horizon. A couple of small squalls crossed over us during the night just to keep us on our toes. We are generally heading north but have managed to make some east, which is pleasing. The weather forecast suggests that we might get quite light winds later on today and tonight. David, Ryan and Rob are sleeping with Maggie and Wendy on watch. Dawn broke about 1 1/2 hours ago and it feel like breakfast time!
