Duplicat's Diary

Nearly there

The night was kind to us - the wind didn’t drop too far, stayed around the 14-17knot range which meant we’ve been pushing on well at 7knots in a very pleasant sea state.

I slept like a baby when off watch, which was needed as I hadn’t had a lot of sleep in the prior 24hrs. Too hot inside, and bouncy plus still settling into the routine of a passage. Tom and David faired a bit better. Last night was bliss in comparison.

We have under 50nm to go now, and will be there today in daylight which is good news as it saves us a 3rd night at sea (which didn’t look likely but depended on how light the wind went).

We picked up a passenger last night - a medium sized bird chose to spend the night on the solar panels on the roof.
