The patten seems to be settling as a bright start with good wind abeam and settled sea.Cloudier mid morning and strengthening wind with clear sky in the afternoon with wind moderating after dark.The wind is 30 degrees off the stern but our speed brings it just aft of the beam.Making 7knt could go faster quite easilly but along way from land so happy as we are.The sea has a glossy shiny appearance and flying fish accompany us on both sides.After dark squid jump aboard.I ´ve not been hit yet but only a matter of time.We are now 7hrs behind UTC.
