We have been a week at sea. The wind is very slack averaging 6 knots so yesterday was spent on boat chores and getting things ship shape again. Jeff’s beard is coming on - its hot and we are down to shorts only !! Forecast is for much the same – we are flying the genecker to get an extra knot but its slow going at the moment. Importantly we will cross 20 degrees today and are still overall ahead on time courtesy of the wild sleigh ride for the first 4 days. We want a bit more wind though....
