Fw: Overcast day

Our second day was somewhat slower than the first, but we still managed a respectable 160 miles or so. However this afternoon has been slow—the sky has been very overcast, we
have had a lot of rain and, a squall with over 30 knots of wind in it excepted, a lack of wind. For the second time this afternoon, there is no wind at all and I’ve stowed the sails while we wait
for it to reappear. An hour on there is no sign of it. The forecast was for 15 knots of wind.
So a frustrating day, playing with sails and making slow progress—which looks like it may go into the night.
STOP PRESS Wind suddenly re-appeared, so sailing again!!
