We achieved the impossible over night and are already registering our fifth longest day with 5 hours to go! This 24 hours could be a new record...we shall see.
It does leave us with an outside chance of Sunday, but we have to keep this speed up for the 30 hours which is a tall order!
It is funny how ones perspective changes. Yesterday I was trying to make water (but that’s another story!) and failing when I looked up....We were doing a fairly consistent 8 knots surfing up to 10 knots down waves, Gill was in the galley making an apple crumble and the lads were in the cockpit totally engrossed in a rather aggressive game of Monopoly.... Star Charger was sailing herself very happily with the wind vane doing the steering, just awesome! Now we are looking at the distance to go just under 200 miles as I write and we are nearly there.
