Wind: West nor' west, F3-4 gentle to moderate breeze
Sea: slight. Swell: North west, 1m
Weather: overcast, cool
Day's run: 121 nm

Apart from the odd tweak of the wind vane I have had to adjust nothing over the last 24 hours, as Sylph has continued to run wing on wing before a nice steady breeze. If it holds then our ETA to the near islands remains sometime Monday.

While the winds remain favourable my plan is to keep on sailing, but if they turn foul or calm then we will seek the nearest safe anchorage.

All is well.
