The weather continues gloriously fine with blue skies and and a hot sun overhead. A good steady breeze stayed with us all night and it looks as though it might stay with us for a day of two. We are at the back of the fleet, but the breeze has pushed us along nicely and has enabled us to gain a little on the two yachts in front (Allegro and Wayward Wind).

Checking our water supply, it appears that we have used 80 litres in a week. The tank is said to hold 330 litres, but when we filled it by jerry can in St Helena, I judged it to have a capacity of 200 litres at the most. In addition, we have a water maker that produces 1.5 litres in 8 minutes. This water we use for drinking purposes only.
