After dinner last night our 2 gittarists were entertaining us until we all fell asleep one by one.

Waking up to a beautiful sunny morning we set sail again heading for the pass between Chiloe Island and the mainland.
Luckily we had a 4 knot current with us when we popped out into the Pacific. There we started to feel the big rollers
from some distant storm. We were lucky with the wind and could set a course direct for Robinson Crusoe Island
some 540 Nautical miles away. We had nice calm reaching conditions all day. A perfect start to a long passage.
