Have been sailing along nicely last few days - today the wind has increased 20-23knots SW, so I have just reefed the mainsail and will continue through the night with a conservative sail area as I would prefer not to go on deck at night.  Rosie says the wind should not increase any more than this, so we will see how the evening progresses.  Approaching half-way in 36hrs or so, currently at 600+nm due to slow pace and light winds at the beginning.
