We are still flying the spinnaker with a light SSW wind giving us a broad
reach. Over the last 24 hours we covered a slightly more respectable 158
miles. Looking at the chart plotter we seem to be on
a line roughly equidistant between Newfoundland and Cornwall, and we
are heading for Iceland, which is a bit depressing. However, we have to
head in this direction in order to keep the wind, as there is a big windless
high between us and the Bay of Biscay. Maybe tomorrow we will turn right
and head towards home.
There is a gentle Atlantic swell building, which is making the spinnaker
flap in the light airs.
At the moment the children are doing schoolwork, supervised by
Charlie and Mark is reading while on watch. We have been
eating very well, including lots of home made soup, which we are enjoying again
now that it is cooler.
