Changing to a more northerly course so we can try to position ourselves on the left hand side of the developing high pressure. This should ensure some strong following winds in the days to come.
The decision of whether to stop in the Azores has been made for us. To get there we would have to motorsail for a long period through light airs and then sail through head winds. Neither of which I fancy.
More dolphins last night. At night they seem even more like torpedoes because they leave a shaft of bio-luminescence through the water as they shoot along with the yacht.
