Day 2

Well the wind has gone and we are firmly in the ITCZ, otherwise known as the doldrums. The seas are absolutely mirror glass with some residual swell. Overall very comfortable. We are looking at a rather long motor over the next couple of days to exit the ITCZ and pick up the southerly trades. We have altered course to move south quicker.

No fishing today, but we finished the tuna so lines go back in tomorrow. A couple of boat projects (cleaned the curtains), a couple of dolphins and a turtle spotted. Otherwise a quiet day spent calculating fuel requirements.
