Monday 11, message from Artemis

« Hi all, Sooooo were of the african coast and, well last night was an experiance!Tthe weather was great steady winds and warm weather. What was more a problem was the huge amounts of unlit or poorly lit boats of the coast. They would sproadically light up with flasing lights when they saw us and would then migrate towards the boat one cut within 15 meters of the boat. It requited a good look out last night and a very powerful spotlight to light these oats up and watch them. This morning we saw what these boats actually look like an they are small wooden skiffs. Yes much like the ones from captain phillips often these boats had 3-4 people onboard. I think they were just as surprised to see us and we were to see them. Anyways now we are continuing down the coast at full steam in 19 knots of breeze waiting to make our gybe and head out across the vast atlantic finally! Artemis Out Robin and Sam »
