There has a line of cumulus cloud astern at 0700hrs which has caught up and is associated with a 2m swell.Wind speed is unchanged at 15knt and the boat sails with a 5 degree heel.Boat speed is 7.4knt and has been all night.Yesterdays run 0800-0800 was 168 nm so 7knt average exactly.There is 2400nm to run to my waypoint 100nm east of the northern tip of the Marquesa.
Slept well.No ships seen.
Getting on well with Capt Aubrey in the Surprise was by coincidence is sailing thes waters but 300 years ago and slightly slower speed than I.
Down to my last orange so scurvey a possibility?Probably not at this rate of knots but a few teeth falling out could be beneficial in view of the difficulty of seeing a dentist in Wales
