We motored all yesterday afternoon, throughout the night and half way through this morning when a breeze sprang up from the NNE. The parasail was up in no time and the wind strengthened a little from 8 knots to 10 knots keeping the sail filled. Our speed may have dropped from the motoring speed of 4.2kn to a sailing speed of 3.6kn, but the relief of no longer hearing the engine or the rumble was very welcome. Today promises another full sunshine day, but the new breeze is keeping us cool. We sat out on deck last night admiring the evening sunset and we shall probably do the same tonight.
