According to my latest weather forecast there is a massive area of very light wind approaching us, so we are trying to get South to the Trade winds before it catches us and we get stuck. We therefore motored until 04:00 this morning at which point the wind increased and backed to the SE as I had hoped.

We are now on course and we are actually SAILING…which makes a very nice change - hopefully we will be able to get South fast enough to avoid the light stuff.
