Last time we heard from the crew, they were struggling with some side winds. These conditions did not ease up on the crew, as they continued to experience these side winds and tall waves, which has resulted in the journey being more difficult than they initially expected, when they left Las Palmas on the 12th of March.
However, the conditions seem to be turning in the crew’s favor. The wind is on their side and it appears as if the gods of weather are on their side, as the sun is shining upon them. This is fortunate for the crew, as they finally get a chance to dry some of their wet clothes.
The crew told us in their previous report, that they had seen dolphins and had seen whales follow them for hours. However, for the past five days, the crew has not seen much else than eachother. Despite the lack of interesting sea life, the crew spotted a small brown bird which followed them for a while, which is all they’ve seen recently. Furthermore, the crew has not seen any other ships or boats recently. The crew says, that the only thing they can do is to “row and row and row…”
