Noon Position: 17.51S 02.31W

Daily run: 150 logged miles

This morning’s 8am position gave us just 230 miles to go to St Helena, or two days of 115 miles or just under 5 knots of speed. We were debating whether or not to push on under full sail and arrive Sunday night or take it easy and arrive Monday morning. We decided on the latter and have taken down the mainsail, leaving just the staysail up giving us 5 knots of speed in 17 knots of wind from the Southeast. An earlier squall has left us in brilliant sunshine and Julia is making bread with the prospect of pizza tonight.
