Light winds today so slow progress.Stronger this afternoon with boatspeed up to 8knt at times.Now approaching sunset and have put first reef back in.Some light rain this morning but only enough to wet the deck and quickly dried off.Still on course for landfall Saturday next week.Major problem is that the tin opener is not working well (french model) which is bad news for tin eateres like myself.No ships seen.
