A good sail yesterday with wind from east, wind droped in night and sea was silly, sails crashing , engine strugling in roling sea 40 miles in 12 hours yuk.
Wind got up this morning and we have managed a steady 5 kn to Gib, having checked tides we are perfect to break out. Was going to stop for fuel but as wind is holding and time is good will head for Cadiz.
