Strategies and whales

Didac Costa (One Planet, One Ocean & Pharmaton):

We hold on to our approach to cape Horn. The last few hours we have gone more North than We Are Water looking for a better conditions for the next 24 hours, to try to gain some miles. Shortly we will know the outcome, anyway we will have tried! The last two days have been exhausting as every 3-4 hours we were caught in a downpour that meant we had to make many sail changes of reef.

Today we’ve seen a whale so close. She appeared at the same side that I was on, steering, no more than 20 meters away! She seemed to me a sperm-whale. She was swimming parallel to us heading to the other direction. She had most of the body out of the water and then has dived and snorted. Then we left it behind. I don’t know if it noticed us, but it was so close! 

After so many days seeing just the sea and albatross it’s been shocking to see such a huge animal so close.

See you later,Didac"
