Voyage from Azores to Tangier, August 12 2010, day 6
Last night had plenty magic as one could see so many shooting stars and make so many wishes…
Still no wind, the ocean is calm and we are running under engine, straight east – 480 nautical miles until the coast of the Iberian peninsula; 780 until Tangier – North wind we miss you, North wind we love you…come on and play with us….
Today the captain showed of with our Japanese sextant, all were allowed to hold it, know now how to read it and some even managed to shoot the sun…..We learned something!
The drums came out late afternoon and a silent sunset dinner is always a fine thing. We told and enacted some of the short Pleasantries of the Incredible Mullah Nasrudin, had a laugh and welcomed the new moon.
I am tired now and will crawl into my tiny luxurious bunk, read a bit and dream a lot.
