Miles to go: 120

All is well on board. Over the last 24 hours the winds have built and we've enjoyed fast, downwind sailing, albeit with larger seas and the inevitable occasional 'galley whomper'. Back to having to live our lives one-handed and it's all a bit of a comedy sketch until we get used to this again.

We expect to cross the equator today, which will be a big milestone for us, and are very excited about that.

Now starting to think about arriving at San Cristobal and preparing for the various formalities.
