Day 8 174nm run, 675nm to go
Little to report today, except good progress is being made and the sun is getting hotter!
Things are going smoothly at present (I always wonder if I tempt fate by writing it!) and seas
somewhat calmer which is a relief as the rolling does get very irritating at times - always seems that
biggest corkscrews come just when I am trying to do something in the galley. Serving out a meal is
fatal - we've eaten from our "dogbowl" plates the whole of this voyage, certainly no chance of a
civilised meal at the cockpit table!
