We made reasonable progress yesterday evening, the wind has continued to drop and veer - it is now around 5kt from NNW. At first light I put up the spinnaker; even with that I'm typically making only a couple of knots, but I have a useful southerly current which has helped the run. So, temporarily, 'beach' weather. Last night the sunset was perfect so I did a compass check (point boat at setting sun and see if the compass gives the right answer - it did to 1 deg), the simplest astro but always strangely satisfying.
