A little down time...

We made it through the night with no autohelm. The wind was NW F3/4 so it was a fairly relaxed night.
Since about 5.00/6.00 this morning the wind has completely dropped giving us the opportunity to sort a few things out on the boat and catch up on some sleep. Hopefully the wind will fill in again soon as this is all getting a bit much for me, not sure I can cope with zoooming along at 1.3 knots!
As we are now about half way to the Azores we are celebrating by changing into a fresh set of clothes (it is the little things that count!)
The forecast for later looks like we could have some stronger winds which is good, so hoepfully will make more progress then...
