Oops … the latitude in our position in the Day 8 post was 38:516.8N which is clearly incorrect; it should have been 38:16.8N. It will be interesting so see how the mailasail blog software interprets this and where it puts us on the chart graphic at the top of the blog. Fixing it will need to wait until we make landfall.

Last night, the winds were relatively light (11 to 16 knots) and because we were running almost dead downwind, progress was slow but it did mean we both slept well. The winds picked up this morning and we’ve had bright blue skies punctuated with brilliant white wispy high cirrus, a welcome change from the dull grey of yesterday’s low level clouds.

All is well.
