The last 24 hours have been uneventful. We continued to make good progress overnight for a total day's run of 144 nm. Given that we have been little more than drifting in light airs for much of the morning, that is pretty good. The wind is picking up a little now and we are making a very comfortable four knots.
 
Now that I am back in mobile broadband range I can add some photos.  Technology!

I am glad the wind was behind us.
 
All is well.
