Middle of the Bay of Biscay

Two days into the outbound trip and about 165nm, of the original 500nm, to
go to La Coruna.

Wednesday saw some splendid fast reaching which covered a good number of
miles along the rhumb line. Overnight we were headed and mtor sailing was
required to keep us out of a stream of north going shipping to our west.

Thursday 1000 saw us hard on the wind on a starboard tack with 15-20kts of
wind from the south west.
