We were becalmed yesterday for about nine hours and that's very frustrating. I'll have to do better at routing us to Cape Town or we'll be here for ever!
Light winds again this morning and so we've decided to use our light spinnaker as a cruising chute, and it works quite well. In 5k true wind, we're getting 5 to  6k boat speed which is not a bad return.
Ian is managing to do a lot of reading. He has the Kindle app as well as downloading a pile of podcasts for the trip. Lot's of flying fish but no more whales. Did we mention that we saw half a dozen off Spain?
