We have been surfing down huge waves all morning and just put up our large Jib for a little more speed, The high winds of earlier are gradually decreasing and hopefully we will fly the spinnaker later this afternoon.The weather looks tricky for the next two days with areas of light winds as we approach Sao Miguel Island from the NW.
We have just passed another race boat Fan Fan and had a chat on the VHF. We took photos of each others boats in heavy seas to exchange when we meet up in Ponta Delgada.
Lunch time soon - warm baguettes and a tinned filling, after 5 days at sea that is a banquette.
Matt has finally changed his first item of clothing - his socks - the old ones are now in the boot with the rest of the landfill rubbish. 
About 429 miles to go....
