Another pleasant and fast beam reach in sunshine. Wind around 20k from SW. Reduced sail mid afternoon and still doing 8.5-9k. Seas started getting lumpy again and reduced sail further for night time though no real reduction in speed. Not great sleep as a bit “lurchie”. Wind should be a tad lighter today.
Now down close to 35N where we wanted to be to get around bottom of low but might keep going a bit more today. Bigger winds expected tomorrow and Sunday and we will be swept by the cold front with a big shift from SW to NW winds.
All well on board, eating well, though a bit tired. Changed clocks yesterday so now on UTC -3.
