Possibly a case of no news is good news. A combination of not having to stop to deal with hoisting the mainsail, the added speed gained from having a working mainsail and stronger winds gave us an additional 30nm on yesterday. Despite a very rolly motion, Elizabeth bashed to pans and produced a tuna bake, one of my favourites.
