Sailing fast all day with the twin headsails, wind varying from 15 to 30knots occasionally but around 20kn most of the time.
                                                  We did touch 10knots at times today, surfing down the waves
Celebration this evening, 1066 on the Distance to Go indicator has more significance than the Battle of Hastings, it means we are halfway across the Atlantic!
So around 2200 we celebrated with an appropriate cocktail, a tot of West Indies Rum mixed with a tot of Cape Verde sugar cane molasses. Downhill fom now on!
