> 14.37.73N 38.14.19w dec 2 2013
> Wind 8.4NE, sog 4.6, course 268
> Comparatively we are racing ahead once more, 5 to 7 knots northerly / NE for the past day which whilst hardly a breeze gets us moving in the right direction, made 100 miles progress today which is pitiful but a huge improvement. Still no sign of Easterlies, parasailor still in locker, white sails prevail. Asymmetric up about an hour ago manages to eek out a fraction more speed despite wind angle being still a little too beamy, expecting it to move to northerly the NE later.
> So very calm conditions, sunny and warm. Brian tried again to teach me something about guitars, up front on the trampoline. The girls made themselves an advent calendar in the shape of a christmas tree with little paper pockets filled with sweets for each day. Denise and Jenny made olive bread with our Albanian olives which was delicious.
