Day 2 Under 2000 miles to go.

Speed: 7.2kt.    Trip: 162nm.    Wind: ENE F4    
We have had some excellent sailing so far and last night overtook two French boats that set off in front of us.  The wind turn right at the same time as us (it must wait for the butter to melt too) so we are sailing with a poled out Yankee goose winged, down wind again.  Waves were 2m but have now flattened to about 1m.
The Arc Plus fleet set off at lunch time today so they are currently 160 miles behind us but I'm sure the faster racing boats will be catching us up in the next couple of days.  
Everyone is settling into the slow pace of ocean sailing. Most of the discussion is about food or the books we are all reading.  Yesterday evening's curry was excellent and tonight we are having one of our pre-prepared Spaghetti Bolognais,e so nothing to-do in the galley this afternoon.
The Chief Communications Officer took two Stugeron on departure and hasn't been seen since. 
Thanks Mandy for the text wishing us all a safe journey.
