Still in some wind, and going well at 7+knots, and even in the same direction. Boat has a slight heal in a flat sea, so once again me and Alison have had a discussion on clipping on.

Allison now in sextant remedial school, and may have to fly her back to the UK, to attend day skipper school, I’m running one in March, and need some clients. Once worked out sight are giving our position to within 10miles of the GPS, so we would even find St Lucia if all the electronics failed, but still it would be the day after we had actually arrived.

Joe having a break from sextant work, as yesterday i had to send him back on deck twice to get better sights, and that he should use his glasses to read the dial, his morning sight was over 600m away, which is odd, as most of his are normally only a few miles away.
