We are currently 150 miles south of the Azores, we will pass on through this year. The weather looks good for the next period, so we will try and get through in one hit whilst we can.
We have enough fuel for another 8 days or so, so motorsailing close hauled in 15 knots of wind.
Finally the weather is more like the North Atlantic, at it is now cold, and full thermals and wooly hats are order of the day on deck.
We have about 6 days until Gibraltar, and hopefully the wind is decent to get through. If not we may take shelter before, but plenty of miles before that and many more weather changes and number crunching for me at the nav station.
That’s all for now.
