The Heat Is On

Gybing quite often during the night in a fruitless chase after a better wind angle.   Soon after the sun rose, the check of the horizen showed a sail bearing SW probably about 2-3 miles away.   Its not one of the Rhum class I think, so a 40 or a cruiser. The first flying fish found on deck this morning.   Only about40mm's long so far too small to cook.
The sun is hotter to-day, the first time I have really felt its heat. Need to start building up protection
A few chores, like toppng up the fuel tank, and then I shall try and get some rest for a while.
