We had a good 24 hours, the wind picked up from less than 10kts for most of the day to 14-6kts on the beam from 4pm, we were flying along at 9kts occasionally 10😃. The amount of traffic reduced as we went north and we have had a quiet night. This morning we are sailing downwind with poles out Genoa and main wing on wing, it’s a bit slower but we are averaging about 7.5-8kts. We have done 188 miles in the last 24hours a new fastest days run for us!
We put the towgen out yesterday and it’s done a good job of keeping the batteries charged.
