The ocean is flat like a sheet of glass. We've been motoring since yesterday. Looks like we are cutting through the two segments of the high. Saw an albatross today, amongst other sea birds. Rhys found a flying fish on the side deck.

It was also a great day for trying to shoot noon sights with the boat being relatively stable. Our longitude was quite a bit off, but then we didn't manage to catch noon time because we first had to learn how to find the sun. We also all participated in the engine check.
