Visions of paella and red wine on the Bay of Biscay (Klaas Knol)

We ARE in the middle of the Bay of Biscay and rolling steadily from side to side. This morning a big thunderstorm cloud arrived and made us quickly have to set some sails and everyone braced for wind force eight. But it stayed just a shower and a little later we were able to "accelerate" again.
The days start with rain more or less as standard, but during the day it clears up. The temperature also rises a bit which is nice. Everyone has found their sea legs and we are sailing towards Spain with great anticipation. Visions of paella and red wine present themselves. One more day of sailing and that's it!
The mood is still good and we know that the coldest part is behind us.
