St Martin to
Another slow but very pleasant day. The gribs have been pretty accurate though and the wind went to the SE and started to increase late afternoon/evening as predicted. We goose winged the genoa and have been sailing like that all night at 7.5 – 8k in 15-20k of breeze, though reefed the genoa a bit in the night. We should have solid building breeze for the rest of the passage (205M to go) so have an ETA around local noon on Friday, hopefully ahead of the worst of the front - put a biggish reef in the main this morning in anticipation, but still doing around 8k.
Life on board is fully occumied with lounging about, reading and fine dining courtesy of chef David.
