Title: Day fourteen - it's a conspiracy I tell you!

Noon position 17:15.5N 38:40.0W
 
Day's run a miserable 117nm
 
And a very Happy New Year to you all!
 
Two things to be fed up about today: first, after absolutely no New Year celebrations whatsoever I (Neil) have had a headache all day, and secondly, what was shaping up to be a more respectable day's run (to noon today) was completely scuppered when the wind died to almost nothing overnight. From making a decent 7kts yesterday afternoon we were down to 3kts at times overnight, only picking up a bit again this morning. We seem destined to complete this trip at an average of five knots which is consistent if unimpressive...I know I keep going on about it but it's annoying me! The wind's still light now but we're maintaining around six knots with the gennaker.
 
Just a brief despatch today as there's not much to report.
 
Finally, and apologies to everyone that this doesn't apply to:
 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPPY!!
