[Captains Blog] Biscay Bay

Most of the way across Biscay now with no wind. Last night I was on watch as we crossed the continental shelf. The depth gauge read 165 metres for a while, then gradually increased to 170, 175, 195, 225, 275, then nothing, we had glided calmly over an abyss where the sea floor dropped away 4000 metres in seconds. awesome.
