Noon Position: 22 15,2 S 078 31.7 W
Course: 285 Speed: 4 Knots
Wind: East sou’ east,  F3 - Gentle Breeze
Weather: Sunny, warm
Day’s Run (25 hours): 112 miles

The wind has slowly picked up, it is still pretty light, but sufficient to fill the sails and keep us moving at a steady four knots. I am trying to get north a little to get more fully into the trades but Sylph seems to want to stay south.

Retarded clocks an hour yesterday as we head west, hence a 25 hour day’s run.

And my new filling fell out, what a nuisance, such a long way to a dentist form here!

But feeling a lot better, only 3289 miles to the Gambiers!

All is well.
