We covered 145 miles in the last 24 hours at an average speed of a little over 6 knots. The wind did ease off a bit in the night but at the moment, we are happy with this return. We had two incidents where we were approached by small craft as we were only 30 miles away from the African coast but luckily they were fishing boats. Ian at one point decided to switch off the navigation lights at night so that we were in stealth mode.
We have done a few jobs this morning, but our concern at the moment is some particulate in the water. Neither of us feels unwell but we will have to get some sort of filtration system sorted in Cape Town.
