Miles to go: 1548

All is well on board. The wind has increased and Macushla is once again well reefed down, and with the favourable Equatorial current running at up to 2 knots, we're achieving a speed over the ground in excess of 8 knots at times. We'll gladly accept this free ride.

Once again our trusty, all-weather bean bags are proving to be a real boon, enabling us both to have a comfortable perch in the cockpit regardless of sea-state.

And finally, we can report that yesterday's catch of the day was absolutely superb and we have more of the same tonight!
