had a great nights sail with the wind dead behind us; took us a while to get the right rig set up correctly, we ended up with 3 reefs in the main and 2 reefs in the genny which was poled out on the port side(opposite side to the main) so saililng a goosewing configuration. Ed woke us up at 6.30 this morning after the wind had strengthened and backed the main; Sam and I dragged ourselves up on deck to find the wind blowing a hooleyand raining as aweather front was passing over us. We furled the genny and stowed the pole and got her sailing on a more comfortable heading. Been making good progres all day with quite a sea following us. So far days runs have been 103 nm and 121nm.
Sam cooked us the muh anticipated chilli only to find the chilli power we booght in Horta wasnt chilli powder and not the slightest bit spicey. Nevermind tabasco sorted it out.
