Light winds or no winds over the last 24 hours, but either sailing or motor-sailing has kept the average speed at around 5kts. We sail until the speed drops below 3kts and then use the engine to help. With the light winds our daily noon-to-noon run was 123.4 sea miles. Currently the wind has increased to 15-20kts and it's right behind us, so with both headsails poled out we're romping along at between 7 and 8 kts.
