Thanks to Dad's emails to France he managed to fix the autohelm. I can't explain what a relief that is!  I almost want to hold my breath as i write this.
Despite the lack of auto helm dad described yesterday evening as his 'best hour ever' on the helm!  He was consistently getting 9 to 10 knots out of the boat.
The wind has dropped slightly, now 13 to 15 knots and is once again SSW which is good for us as we are trying to avoid a hole to our East.  We are doing 060 degrees at a speed of about 6 knots.
Spinaker time soon...
