Better sailing

Well at last, around 0930 this morning, the wind perked up to around 12 knots---so after another night of slow sailing---albeit with no rain and a pleasant enough motion---we are now sailing at 6 knots
towards Chagos. And the forecasts suggest a little stronger winds to come.
Little to report, really. We have about 750 miles to go and hope we can run them down a bit quicker than hitherto. We are eating well—the last of our mahi-mahi last evening, and the fruit is still good
for a couple of breakfasts yet---as is the fresh veg. And we’re getting through the reading—thank goodness for kindles!
