Tonight we are going in the right direction with calmer seas
We are motor sailing at between 6.5 and 7 knots and are closing the land (about 20nm) some shipping and fishing boats
There is a current or tide of about 2 kts against  us so by closing the land we may get out  of the stream if a tide then we will have the benefit in a few hours time when the tide turns
We are about to go across the depth contour from 4000 meters to 400 meters in one go so we shall see the effect in about an hours time
Eta tomorrow into Gaulle  in the afternoon
Our position is 06:05n 081:41e
