Left the cruising chute up last night; were on the edge though doing 7 kts most of the night with a brief spell on my watch upo to 7.8kts which was uncomfortable. Wind eased today and had pleasant sailing doing about 4 to 5 kts in a light westerly breeze. Forecast says stronger winds from tonight throgh next few days so will take down chute before nightfall. All been sitting on deck reading, Sam's read 5 books this trip!! Thanks mainly to Chris Ryan. Had our last fry up this morning, no eggs left now. Ed cooking tonght having lost spoof with Sam. About 275 miles to go so expect to be in Falmouth about Wednesday morning; going to tie up at Falmouth Marina and we all extend the warmest welcome to anyone who would like to join us for a few beers, our first for some time.
