Bay of Biscay
47 28.0N 004 12.4W The day dawned with a brilliant sunrise. DUring the night, the Da Zhong began to roll to a light swell as she entered the Bay of Biscay. The day proceeded uneventfully until we reached the anchorage in a glass like sea out of La Pallice, France where we dropped anchor at 1820hrs. During the day I commenced oiling the inside planks, checked the lashings and wedges and washed the decks.
