'Vulcan Spirit' is back at sea, en route for Las
Palmas and the start of the ARC - we are currently about 120nm away, making a
bit over 5 knots upwind into a rather lumpy sea. if we carry on like this we
should make Las Palmas early afternoon tomorrow. Alison is feeling unwell
as usual and is declining to come downstairs to finish the scones she has
started, so I'm in charge of them. White chocolate & cranberry mix; they
smell very good. I expect that I'll have to eat them all as the other half of
the crew will not want any.
