A day of close encounters with shipping and wildlife. Day 2 saw 2 close encounters with ships 1 merchant vessel and a patrolling Coastguard ship (see image) both ships had picked us up on radar, proving our sea me system works well. our other close encounter was our 1st sighting of Whales firing huge water spouts, this was a welcome sight in the thick fog we were in at the time. blisters continue to grow as we work for every mile in the head winds. spirits remain high as we wait patiently for the westerly winds.
