Another excellent day of trade wind sailing, but now as we close the coast we are starting to lose the wind, the mainsail is starting to slat and my nerves are starting to grate with each crash Ommmm!
We have only 120 miles to go so with a bit of luck may be in Salvador by late tomorrow, but if the wind leaves us, well then its anybody's guess. I have taken the opportunity with the light air and dry decks to get a bit of undercoat on the side of the coach house, at least we won't look quite so patchy when we get into harbour.
All is well.
Ommmm . Zzzzzzz.
