Last night was a busy night.  The wind gradually increased from the north and we started with the full main and genoa and by day break we had two reefs and the jib.  Of course the reefs and sail changes all happened at different times and so we were kept occupied for most of the night with that.  Also it was raining!
As the sun rose it dispersed the clouds but the wind keeps moving between north and north west, even going west under black clouds and so the self steering and sails have required constant adjustment all day to keep us headed for Falmouth.
