We have had a very pleasant twenty four hour's sail, not only has it been very comfortable, we have also made very good time. I have barely had to touch anything. Sylph is set up for a close reach which, while the wind remains at around ten to fifteen knots, is a great point of sail. The wind is forecast to increase into the fifteen to twenty five knot range over the next twenty four hours, so this will undoubtedly see us reducing sail and perhaps bearing away on to a beam reach so as to keep our speed up and the ride a little more tolerable.
All is well.
