So the star sights didn’t work out to well, so must try harder to understand which stars are which, a bit to cloudy to try tonight, and been a busy day.

3 sail changes, and now running with main and headsails, and in a good wind so going well for the first time in many many days, starting to do good speeds of 6 to 7 knots over the ground.

Will we make it for the party, well if the winds keep up as promised we may make it.

Had yacht Blues ARC boat 234 come past us today, we had a session of photos, as they came within 30m of us, we even had to bring in our fishing line so they could clear out stern, as they went passed us. It was good to see another boat so close, had a chat on the radio, plenty of waving. They are now over the horizon and on their way
