Very light winds around 10 knots so slow progress.
We tested out the shower and are all clean and beautiful again:
Al did a clothing wash:
J tried to catch a fish but whatever bit at the lure went off with the hook
At 4ish the wind got up but brought rain with it.  We are now sailing at 10 knots again.  Al has had plenty of practice with the spinnaker snuffer and we all think it is brilliant.
So far so good – we are going south to try to catch the trade winds and hope to turn right just north of the Cape Verde Islands.
Position at 18.30 is 25 deg 44.16 N, 17 deg 34.29 W
