Miles to go: 350

All is well on board and we're well over half way through the passage.

The latest weather forecast indicates that the winds will lighten significantly over the next day or so, as we'll be between two weather systems, so we expect progress to be quite slow. However we're hoping that, with flat seas and a positive south sub-tropical current, we'll find enough breeze to ghost along.

We've had one or two night-time rain squalls - nothing serious, but enough to keep us on our toes.
