On passage again

We left Mindelo yesterday about lunchtime, fast passage between Sao Vicente and Santo Antao but then had to motor for about 3 hours to get past the island wind shadow. But since then we have been sailing in good winds on a very broad reach and covered about 180 miles in the first 24 hours.

Biggish swell, so the usual Atlantic roll, we continue bowling along. Wind does seem to be dropping a bit however, so slowing up.

All is well.
