Becalmed good and proper. Kite just hanging limp – rolling with the swell. We’re too far out for any land effect on the breeze altho we’re getting some breeze from the Irish radio stations.

Do dolphins live in pods or schools? whatever, there’s been a crown of them around us cavorting and snorting – quite big ones and about 40 or 50.

Time to try the oldHobartcheater – very light tall thin cut down headsail that sometimes works to catch the wind from the boats roll.
