We had a difficult night trying to keep boat speed up and both needed sleep this morning.
I've had a swollen finger for a few days and caught it on something as we were changing sails at 3am, the foredeck and sail are covered in blood this morning - fingers' a lot better though.
Looking at this mornings weather chart we still need to keep north of the rheum line to avoid a high pressure zone and light winds and also to make better use of NW winds in a few days time.
Conditions now allow us to fly a spinnaker this afternoon. Matt has just been preparing the foredeck and saw a large Turtle making a dash to get out of our way - just missed it ! 
A good 24 hour run of 168nm for day three.and about 768 to go....
