567 Miles to go to the Azores.

Nice easy sailing in 10 knots of wind all night but then in the morning an evil frontal cloud system was seen in the SW. We quickly put in 2 reefs and got ready for some strong wind and rain. It's bark was much bigger than it's bite. It only blew 15 knots and no rain. And then in 2 hours time the wind had completely dropped away to 3 knots. Strange Northern Hemisphere! We are now motoring under clear skies. A high pressure system must moved over the top of us. The last time we motored was on day 2 so that is a good long quiet stretch. Still no fish caught but I saw a school of small Tuna swimming off the bow today! Probably making fun of us I think. :) All good onboard.
