A comfortable but very slow night in light winds yet again.

First light and it was a beautiful sunrise.  Early morning fishing yielded the biggest fish yet - another Mahi Mahi about 10kg caught by Simon!

Weather beautiful and very hot.  Caught in a big squall mid afternoon but the crew dealt with it extremely well.

Lightish winds throughout the day. Talked to others on VHF this morning and everyone slightly frustrated with the wind.

Nina did laundry - bedding all clean!

Nina also cooked a wonderful roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings - it is Sunday after all! It was incredibly good and just like home.

Wind has really picked up this evening and now making 7/8kts with staysail and poled out Genoa ready for night.

Noon position 16 29.08 N, 50 08.50 W. Now less than 600m nm to go!!!
