Still making good progress with very boisterous conditions last night as the wind went to the north and helped the gulf stream into a messy state.  Although we are now motoring in very light headwinds and the GS perversely acting against us, we feel we are making good progress, having passed the ¼ way mark earlier – with 1790nm to go roughly.  Not much wildlife to report apart from a pod of dolphins that kept us company for a while and quite a few “sail-by-the-wind” jelly fish.  We had a good sized flying fish join us on deck for a while – just too small to eat so I threw it back.

We are both feeling well and managing to get enough rest – just about.
