Champagne breakfast, card and gifts!

Great weather and sailing in reasonable winds.  Now less than 250 miles to go!!! Good VMG last 24 hours.

Stood by and offered moral support and some engineering advice (Andy) to yacht Gitana who had a problem with their main engine/saildrive and were unable to charge their batteries.

ARC Rally Control has reported another yacht dismasted and in need of fuel.

G&Ts for sun downers. Cooked Nina’s favourite dinner - Chicken with Chorizo and bean stew!

Noon position 15 15.07 N, 55 35.11 W
