Days run 172. Yesterday was overcast with heavy rain squalls and an uncomfortable swell. Wind eased overnight but we were not without some heafty lurches. This  morning we jybed - that was 5 days on Port. Hopefully on this jybe till Antigua. We are now on Great Circle heading with wind 25 off stern making motion much easier. We will cross the important psychological step of 1000 to go at 1315Z. All systems are working well with frull tanks - we havnt used the main engine sine leaving Rubicon and the generator uses very little - and plenty of catering. We are even allowed to fish again.
No other boats in contact now as we move N of the ARC track.
Everyone in good form - if we can hold daily runs we should make Jolly Harbour early Friday.
