At 0900 local time (1300 gmt) distance run in last 24
hours 176 miles :Total run so far 1220 miles
Which means that if I can go reasonably direct (which is highly unlikely)
to Horta (Azores) then I am half way there!
Pretty straightforward day .. Just keep going as fast as possible on a beam
reach ... So a day of look at the wave that had just gone by as the boat heeled
even more because of going up the side of the next wave ... up and a good
sea view ... of waves! .. then inspect the sky as sliding down the other side
... And all in a flurry of foam from the bow wave... Good exercise even when
Wind was beginning to drop by the evening .. so would only get lighter
during the night .. so full genny but kept both reefs in as I fancied a good
nights sleep (been a lot going on the previous 2 nights so as now we were losing
the wind .. so what) which I did. By mornig shook out reefs and only doing 6
knots .. but could see lots of heavy rain appearing from astern .. not a bright
start to a new day!
