Last night at dusk a frigate bird maneuvered for several minutes trying to land on our solar panels, where it sat quietly through the night. Just as the dawn brought some vislble light, it gave a croak and set off for another day in the life without land.
We had a clear night with the moon setting early, so the stars were very bright and felt quite close.
Today brings more bright sunshine and mostly easy wind and waves. The wind should shift more easterly in another day which will allow a more comfortable angle for us.
