No excitement for a day then it all happens at once, the wind returns, four very large ships converge around us, our first large whale blows and Claire turns out a stunning dinner of pork chops in delicious thyme and whiskey sauce with cauliflower, leeks and potatoes!

We are now over half way to Cape Verde and although arrival won’t be for three or so days we are trying to guess when we are likely to make landfall.  Navigating Cape Verdes in the dark is not recommended so if we get there say early in the evening we will have to lurk offshore all night waiting for the dawn before going in.  Obviously the utopia is to arrive off the islands early in daylight but how do you ensure that when you have no control over the weather and the daily distance travelled…….which by the way was 106 NM for the last 24 hours.
