Miles to go: 731

All is well on board as we keep ticking off the miles.

The seas have built to around two metres with the swell just off the port quarter and the sailing is more like the trade wind conditions we remember. However, by keeping our speed down it remains comfortable with only the occasional rogue wave knocking us temporarily off course.

At night we now have a glorious waxing moon which makes such a difference and we're glad it's making an appearance now that the seas are bigger. We continue to enjoy our many podcasts and music collection during the night watches and, with all our BBC documentaries, we're learning a thing or two as well.
