Second blog this trip, my you are lucky.
Fortunatley the wind started slowly picking up yesterday afternoon and no doubt you can see from the YB tracker we are moving along well now. Duogen is in the water and making free electric, so no need to run generator etc, it even keeps up with fridge and freezer!
Looks like we should be arriving ealry hours of the morning in Lanzarote, fingers crossed.  The breeze is holding up far better than the forecast, currently its approx 12 to 14 kn so about to put a reef in for comfort, speed is 8 or 9 kn upwind!
So far no dolphins, whales, flying fish, only the occasional sea bird and loads of ships.
Next blog after we arrive,
