We've had some wet and cloudier weather through in the past few hours with waterproofs being donned for watches. We have just passed the 500 mile mark and were hoping to complete the passage without motoring, however the forecast for the next few days is for very light winds so we may be motor sailing from the early hours of tomorrow. Our current estimate is to reach Antigua on Thursday evening or overnight.
Yesterday afternoon produced another fine catch so it's fresh fish on the menu for tonight. We've had a run of no fish that we think may be linked to clumps of seaweed getting caught on the lines. For the last few days there has been quite a lot of seaweed floating past.
Paddy wishes the Clyde Cruising Club Committee meeting well and wishes he could be there.
