Major excitement on the afternoon watch - a ship has appeared on the radar although we may not see it as it is not expected to come closer than 14 miles. Makes up a little for only rolling along at three knots on a fine sunny afternoon with thirteen sails set, due to the effect of the high pressure. Where are those depressions when you want them to speed you on to Cobh ? Short interruption to clew up the courses and sheet in the spanker as one engine has been started to keep up our average speed. Sighted the ship at last, hull down on the port side, so exciting that the dolphins have arrived to take a look as well.
Funny how these days at sea get to you !
