The wind dropped last night as predicted and we were motoring and motor sailing fro much of the night. We downloaded a weather report to confirm our decision to go North West instead of the traditional "South until the butter melts and then turn right" approach and have decided to take a chance that the weather forecast might be correct!  It looks like several of our closest competitors have made the same choice. Everyone else has gone South and are also sitting in a wind hole!
We are currently about 10 overall but hopefully we can make up some of that tomorrow.
Some of the crew took the opportunity to catch up on some sleep!
More wind tomorrow!
