We sailed from Minerva yeterday as the wind dropped into a steady S/Easterly . Unfortunately this did not pwersist and become a flukey easterly . Very difficult to keep the boat sailing so we are using some engine well she stops . The sea still has a fair swell which is adding to the discomfort. Still it is hot and sunny and sea and sky blue so not too bad .
