WSW in 15 knots E. 7-8 kn speed. Sunnier today after overcast and rainy yesterday.
First day without any real incident and the spinnaker pole is holding with tape, clams and smaller screws. We are more relaxed.
Only 160 nm as we do not dare use our spinnaker with the pole nor unfold the genoa fully.
Still we are making progress up the list - at a rate of 16 boats a day there is hope.
