We have travelled  642Nmls so far with 1090 Nmls to go to St. Helena. Our ave spd. is 6.3kts, Wind – 10-15 knots ESE/SE so ETA St Helena – 25th Jan.
There was some lightening last night towards the African coast but it did not develop to anything. We are settling into a sleeping and watch pattern slowly. I had to walk about and do some stretches on watch last night as every time I sat my head started to nod and my eyes were closing.
We have a new toy! Stephen bought a small kite in the shape of a windsock and has installed it at the back of the boat. It is much easier to look at and gauge the wind direction and speed then the instruments. And it is a bright cheery colour – fluorescent orange!
No wildlife report today of any kind.
No other vessels report of any kind.
On board report – all fine!
