26. 40N 17.16W all going well and the first niight of the passage was quite reasonable, we have done 113 miles in the first 24 hours, which given the light winds early on is not too bad.
First night of a passage is always the hardest, but it was a peaceful night to be on watch. I just about kept my senses together although I was fanticising about a full breakfats at 7 am, just as it was getting light and I was bouncing along on the boat on watch my own, with waves of around 2 metres all I could dream of was my breakfast.
Continuing on at around 5 knots, heading about 220 looking to pick up the proper trades a bit further south.
