It has been an interesting 24 hours mainly due to the weather. As I mentioned yesterday we were experiencing some strong winds and big swell, almost immediately after I finished yesterdays update the decision was made to stop rowing as to continue would have been unnecessarily dangerous. The swell reached about 6m at times and with oars catching in the water and the boat beginning to surf there was real potential for somebody to damage a thumb or get an oar in the ribs.
All good today the wind finally came around to the north and is now pushing us along nicely, yesterday we made 74 miles and making better time today so we expect to make 80+ today. Can’t write much more no sun and light wind means our batteries are vey low. I will update in more detail in a couple of days when the sun comes out. Point to point distance travelled by 6.30pm on day 4 = 127km / 69nm Lazarote in sight! Mike
