We have only sailed 300nm since leaving Galapagos but have now done 7000nm since leaving Gibraltar Our position is this morning 04:05s 095:26w and the night brought a lot of rain We put up the bimini side panel to try and keep us dry and stop some of the driving rain from going below decks
Yesterday and last night the Hydrovane rudder came off as the pin had clearly fell out. The first time in 12 years so I need to investigate the reason when light.
We are sailing at between 5 and 6 knots and have a 1.5kt current with us and have sailed] more in the last 24hrs than motor sailed
