The wind died just before midnight last night and we are sitting on a duck pond - glassy calm as it can be out here. 
I have tried both the spinnaker and gennaker to get us going.
We are drifting at 2 kts with a bit of help from the tide and have 4.5 miles to the waypoint where we turn for home.
Just looked at Maxsea latest weather GRIB file and if correct the wind should arrive from the SE sometime this afternoon - not very strong but enough to get us going.  
This calm weather has given opportunity to catch some serious sleep - one hour in the bunk this morning.  Feeling great!
Must go - waiting for the wind!!!
