We have had a good sail so far, set off down he rum line, with a risk of calms ; but none happened so saved 100 miles on trip. then used best sails to make for St L . At teaa time 4 days ago Asymetric was too much so went to main only, next morning set jib and genoa , poled opposite each other and made progreess in light winds, then wind incresed in night and I had a good sail, if on he edge. Following day all was good with this set up of twin head sails so caried them into night. Wind then got p and moved to south so we had a fast night going a bit north.
Morning yeterday we reduced to one head sail and were on corse, since then we have only had a small head sail or no sail, Gertha is searing her self most of the time ; but we have had long periods of us on helm, so all well knackered.
AT his time, pm local on saterday is looking a bit better; but still 2/30 knts breeze, forunatly pshing us to caribian.
Seph is in grump cooking tea and Andrew should be on wattch.
Happy days from an Atlantic
