We had a very good night and at 5 am we took the reefs out of the main. Since then, the wind has gradually died down and so we have an excuse to put the engine on, as the batteries need charging. We are pointing towards Mindelo on the island called Sao Vincente (Cape Verdes). We have been there before on Sea Spray, and that was connected with water problems as well.
We saw one of the Golden Globe race boats on Playa Blanca, which had retired. Her name was Coconut and I think her skipper is Australian. She looked quite ordinary, apart from how small she looked for the challenge she had started to undertake.
