14.00 on Saturday. After a great nights sailing by the moon and stars Saturday morning started with a magnificent sunrise over Morocco. The wind held for a few hours but has now died to around 5 knots so unfortunately the engine has had to go on. Watch roster up and running and so far so good. Dom seemed to have the roughest end of the first night watches but doesn't look too bad on it. A bit of a hairy time decanting diesel from the containers but eventually sorted. Burn rate at the moment 3.8 litres per hour at 2000 rpm.
Andy we couldn't find the tricolor last night. Have we got one?
So 160 miles into the passage and feeling greeat, just hope for a bit more wind in the next 12 to 24 hours.
Well time to get back on deck for some sun.=
