Well not much has changed since yesterday including our position. We have
had virtually no wind and what there has been has constantly changed

To make it worse we seem to have an engine overherating problem that is not
yet resolved.

The weather is fine and wind is predicted but the difficulty is we don't
know when! We did at least see a few whales yesterday. Not too close but
close enough to see them blowing and slowwly swimming past us. That and a
few more ships is all. Now it is into a hot engine space to investigate.
Wish me luck!

Miles to go 300, that makes a distance covered of 30 miles since yesterday -
definitely a record as the slowest day so far.
