Heading North Day 6

All is well on board and after a slow, but steady night, the wind has started to build slightly and we're making better progress with all white sails set.
We're being frugal with our power at night, as our DuoGen towed generator output drops relative to our boat speed. As a result we've not yet needed to run the engine.
The hot sun and clear skies are such that our solar shower bags are producing hot water in abundance and the flat seas make for a relatively easy cockpit shower. Wonderful!
We expect to see Bermuda before the day is out and are keeping our options open as to whether we stop there. All is dependent on the latest weather forecasts which we plan to discuss with Herb this evening.
