A mix of sea conditions settling at dusk to a very pleasant movement, calm and blue. Spaghetti bolognese for lunch, not too much water in the leak collection rig. Yeah.

18:27, the sun is setting slightly later. We sailed all night in an average of eighteen knots of wind.

My two until six saw lots of bright stars and at a quarter past five the pre-dawn light was sufficient to turn the chartplotter screen to its brightest setting. New habit is to get Bear’s trusty, old, duct taped laptop out at half five and begin to type the blog and weather conditions email to Des, ready to send at six. There are some frustrating times when it takes two or three attempts to get Outlook Express on line, sometimes a minute – done and dusted. Not able to use the internet is proving to be a nice break.
Stats so far – 444.6 nmiles covered with an average of 4.6 knots. In the last twenty-fours hours 112.8 nmiles.
 
 
ALL IN ALL REALLY INTO THE SEA LIFE PATTERN
                     VERY COMFORTABLE
