36:45.67N 33:38.21W at 1200 UTC Well we have wind but it is coming from where we want to go so we are now truly tacking our way to the Azores. In the last 6 hrs we have been sailing at around 6 to 7 knots but only managed to knock off 18 miles towards our destination so hoping the wind will veer as forecast so that we can make better progress. The butter doesn’t even melt anymore.
As the crow flies we only have about 250 miles to go which we should easily achieve within two days but with the tacking who knows.
Otherwise all well on board and looking forward to not getting up for a watch.
