As we continue our steady of slow progress everything indicates that we should arrive in Ascension during daylight hours tomorrow. The WetterWelt forecast gave rather more wind than happened but at least our daily run is up on yesterday. Any temptation to help the wind with a little diesel is tempered by what is to come on the next passage.
