All well here. We had to motor for 4-5 hours as the wind dropped off.It was very very warm. Saw 2 ships in all –the nearest was 7 miles away. John and myself  are alternating the cooking. Bangers and mash with rashers last night. Tasted very nice at sea ! The wind has backed  as the forecast predicted-which means we are able to sail north west towards the Azores rather than north towards Bermuda. We’re doing 6 knots in 10 knots of wind . (the main and genoa-still slightly furled after the night) The sea state is pleasant-the sea weed has diminished but no fish so far !

We’ve had no rain- unlike on land in Caribbean where there was at least one heavy shower a day-mostly at night.

Going to download latest weather gribs now and hopefully this will continue !
