“45:37.633N 24:00.367W”
Friday started with thick fog cutting visibility to a couple of boat lengths reminding us that we are now entering cooler northern waters. There was little wind so we used the opportunity of the calm seas to do a few jobs around the boat.
A very quiet day, no other ships in sight, no radio traffic, no planes flying overhead.....silence except for the sound of the sea and the hushed whirring of the autopilot that steers our boat.
We have now sailed north far enough to reach latitude 45N that received wisdom tells us is where we will find westerly winds to take us home.  Overnight we turned Moonstone’s bow NE towards the UK, only another 850NM to go.
