Monday first full day at sea - what could be better, a cloudless night with every star imaginable above the tricolour. Trade wind steady during the day (F4 ENE). Days run noon to noon 163 nm (logged 184 nm) - The wind was very light during last night but picked up nicely this morning and has been steady all day. Spent the afternoon rigging the Amapir towed generator - launched at 17:30 - and generating power for the batteries. We hope to maintain the power usage for the autopilot and essential electonics with this. That's all for now - off to cook the dinner. MF out.
