A very mixed sailing day!! Some good, fast sailing--at other times no wind nand under engine. Some sun, but a lot of cloud and heavy showers. However this unsettled weather is expected until we get south to the trade winds--hope we'll be picking them up tomorrow evening.
We covered 150 miles in our first day--not bad, given we wasted some time re-packing the cruising chute and had a very unsettled night with engine on and off as the wind changed strength. So only about 2900 miles to go!!
All is well.
