Yesterday was cloudy with stronger winds and at times a 3m beam swell.Alittle uncomfortable last night so not such a good nights sleep.Dark blue sea this morning and the clouds are astern.Would probably have been better with a reef in the main.
Logged 177nm for 24 hours yesterday of which only 10nm was current.I think being fairly south of the track sailed by most yachts is giving me better wind but less current;but then I´m sailing and not motorsailing ´vive la difference´
No other boats seen and doubt if they will be untill we merge together nearer in.
Things look good for a fast passage baring accidents or breakages.2230nm to go.
