An unnervingly pleasant first night...

Over the evening the wind dropped from 20 knots to 12 and at night was 4 to 10 NE. However, considering the forcast we were given on Monday this was a nice little surprise and has meant that we have made better progress than we thought we might (however, I have learnt not to get carried away with ourselves and just taking each day at a time.)
We are heading North whilst waiting for the low to come across from the West, this should bring Southwesterly winds. Once these arrive we are hoping to stay on the edge of the low pressure so we can pick up winds (hopefully F4/5) and do not fall into the hole to our East whilst not allowing us to go to far West where the winds will be much stronger - that's the plan, we shall see...
