Fine blue skies aand sunny .Sailing south at between 6 and 7 knt under one reef and jib .
First 636 hours hae logged313nm at aerage speed of 6.9 knt . We are now in easterly wind stream and in high pressure . I expect the wind to dcrease oer the next 18 hours and turn southerly so we may slow down considerably.
A pin in the water gen fell out at dusk  so we were without it lats night . The batteries had enough charge in them and now all is back to normal.Just meant 15 minutes in a harnesss on the stern fixing it .
Just had acold shower which reminds me of the joy of a new hot water cylinder waiting for us in NZ
