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.
