Position 38:57.0N 033:25.0W 1840 GMT
Speed 6 knots. Course 090 deg Magnetic.
108 Miles to go to the Azores. 1613 Miles gone so far.

We had the spinnaker up all night and were sailing at 5 knots on a tight broad reach in 8-10 knots of wind on silky calm seas and a starlit night. By salad lunchtime ( we,ve had a salad every lunch so far! ) the wind had picked up to 15 knots so we dropped the spinnaker and replaced it with the Genoa. We are now sailing on a broad reach doing sixes and sevens. This morning was amazing! - sailing with spinnaker, sunrise and a pod of dolphins frolicking near the bow. All going well we should arrive at Flores tomorrow. All good onboard.
