Winds continued favourably during yesterday afternoon and evening but dropped off towards early morning making the passage a bit uncomfortable. Changed tack around 8 am and are now 2 sail reaching. Condtions very pleasant with 16K of wind and 9K of speed and a very comfortable heel  angle. Sun out. Very warm
Had very good fish on line and fighting hard but got off. Very difficult to land with 9 knots forward motion.
162 miles covered in last 24 hours.
