Kantara Atlantic Odyssey

Today is more like the brochure Andy sent me. All those nasty winds and rough seas have been replaced by light winds and nearly smooth seas. Not good obviously for our schedule, but better for sun bathing and drying out. Also means it is easier to get about below and catch up on tea drinking and food consumption.
Due to the first few days of inclement weather a lot of our gear is quite salty and moist and we have been relying on baby wipes, so we are hoping to have our first showers later today.
We had a good meal last night washed down with a glass of red so things are definitely starting to improve (yes I know I said we were going to have a dry boat but then we came to our senses.) Nobody has baked anything yet (Joe we miss you) and I have not seen another UFO so normality is slowly being restored.
We are about 580 Nm from Bermuda and 1334Nm from The Azores, having covered over 1000Nm already. Kantara is going well and is exceptional in light airs so here's hoping the wind does not die down too much.
Everyone is well and we should all have a chance to catch up on our sleep today. Surprisingly we have yet to see any dolphins.
Good afternoon, good evening and good night!
Regards from Ian and crew
