We've spent the last three hours sailing along pretty well. The night has been perfectly clear through 02:00, but some fog is rolling in at the moment. The wind has been light but reasonably steady at about 9-12 knots. We're reaching under the smaller light kite and making some miles.

We've seen a couple of shark fins lazily swimming past Dawn Star, one quite large, the other smaller. No one has gone swimming since then. At night, we've had a bird of some type flying around the boat, at one time it dive bombed Sam while she was trimming the spinnaker.

Tomorrow looks like the lightest air day so far, we're working hard thinking about how to navigate through it. In the mean time, we just need to keep sailing the boat hard and fast.
