Still making fantastic progress in superb sailing conditions, sun, blue skys and about 22kts from the NE. The noon to noon run today was an amazing 195.5 nm, just missing out on the 200 mile day, which is an average of just over 8kts in a straight line. Will try and break the 200 mile day before the trip is finished. The reality is that it is so easy to get these speeds with this boat without pushing it at all.
Yesterday evening was fantastic, not a cloud in the sky, thousands of stars, warm winds and Dire Straights on the Bose system to helm downwind to.... Magic.
More tomorrow..
